Q:

What is a "Friends and Family Day" at church?

A:

Friends and Family Day at a church is a day on which members of the church are encouraged to invite as many friends and relatives as possible to join them for a day of worship. The individuals who are invited for the day are not official members of the church.

Friends and Family Day can be celebrated in many ways. Some churches invite renowned speakers to deliver a sermon, whereas other churches offer an entire program designed to entertain guests. Singing, dancing and acting out Bible stories are common examples of entertainment found on Friends and Family Day. Food is often served at these events as well.
