Pet Party

A few months ago a parish in Ohio told me about a social event they do in the parish. Father is a dog-guy and loves having his dog around! (A side story: my pastor got a small white dog right before he retired and the dog followed him everywhere!)

So they had a “pet party” at the parish or the local dog park with Father and his dog and all of the parishioners!

A fun event that brings the entire house out to a church event.

Why do I love this event (even though I’m not a dog-person)? Because it begins with common ground. It allows relationships to be built so discussions can go deeper!

Find an interest that Father shares with parishioners and get them together!
