Gene Gilliland and Ed Jones were guest on Coffee Call talking about the upcoming Family Week

Building strong families is the purpose of Marshall County Family Week which will be October 12 through October 18. Ed Jones and Gene Gilliland joined us recently on WCBL’s Coffee Call program. They say the event began around 1999 and was started by Benton Church of Christ, but was intended then and still is intended to be a community wide event. Families are encouraged to take part in each night’s activity, including: Monday night, family picture night, when you are encouraged to pull out old family pictures and discuss. Tuesday night, family game night. Wednesday, Bible study night. Thursday, family meal night. Friday, family discussion of emergency preparedness. Saturday, family drive through the county visiting old family home sights and cemeteries and Sunday, families worship together at their churches.
