Free Methodist Church to Offer Parents’ Night Out Program

Cliff Drive church to provide child care for parents one Friday night a month

We all know how important it is for parents to have a night out, and yet how difficult it can be to make that happen. Free Methodist Church in Santa Barbara can help make it a little easier.

Beginning Friday, Free Methodist Church, 1435 Cliff Drive, will provide child care on the third Friday of the month so parents can have a night out together. A pizza dinner will be provided for children. A $5 donation is suggested.

RSVP by Wednesday to Tammy Lashlee, children’s ministries director, at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 805.965.1338 x232.

Free Methodist Church on the Mesa was founded in 1955 and has been led by Pastor Denny Wayman since 1976. The church has three worship services on Sunday mornings — at 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m. — and has a Spanish-language congregation, Pura Vida, which meets at Girls Inc., 531 E. Ortega St., and is led by Pastor Paula Sevilla. The church also has a congregation in Goleta, Light & Life Goleta, pastored by David Goss.

The church’s Cliff Drive Care Center serves people of all ages, and includes a fully licensed preschool and kindergarten readiness program; an after-kindergarten and after-school program; a Christian Counseling Center with state-licensed therapists; and a senior luncheon program.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
