First Church’s First Father Daughter Dance

By Monique Ward
Sojourner’s Truth Reporter

On Saturday, September 22, 2012, the congregation of First Church of God held their inaugural Father Daughter Dance. The new event was held at the UAW Local 14 Hall in Toledo, Ohio. Fathers and daughters were dressed in their going-to-meeting best as they danced and dined into the evening.

“My wife was sharing with me the vision that God gave her concerning fathers and daughters in this city and probably across the nation. There is a decline in father/daughter relationships and we are just trying to get men to step back up in their families’ lives, to be a part of their families’ lives and to stay in their families’ lives,” said Don Hicks who was accompanied by his wife LaVonna Hicks.

“We're supporting family life ministries by having a great event supporting fathers and daughters,” mentions Pastor Charles Waldon of M.O.V.E. (Men of Men of Vision Empower). “This is our first time that we at First Church of God are doing this but we believe that God is going to bless it. Often times the father is missing in the home and we just want to make a statement that we are here for our daughters and our granddaughters.”

It was definitely a wonderful night to remember for the enthusiastic daughters and proud fathers in attendance.
