The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Family Night is a fun opportunity to create, build and let your family time be outside the box. From food to crafts, everyone in the family will have the chance to use their hands and fashion some fun projects. Then, as a family can take time to look at how God desires to fashion us into an amazing creation for his purposes.
