November Date Night Challenge Ideas

Happy November! We want to help make date night a priority in your marriage, so we have a few ideas to help you plan a fun, intentional evening!
 
Date Night Ideas:
Chili Cook Off
Pull out your aprons and come up with your own chili recipe! Once you have perfected it, invite a few couples over with their versions of this yummy meal and then have a taste test on this fall classic. You can even vote on which recipe is the best and give a prize to the winning couple!
We’re on the Same Team
Hustle, hit, never quit! Wear the school colors, sit in the home section, and cheer on a local high school football team together! For Calvary Christian Academy’s schedule, click here.   
Under the Stars (or Lights) 
Now that the weather should be a little cooler, why not head out to the great outdoors and have a camping date? You can pull this off in your own backyard or find your way to a woodsy destination. And if you are not an outdoorsy kind of couple, set up sleeping bags or an air mattress in your living room, eat some camping staples (hotdogs, hamburgers, s’mores), put your phones away, hide the remote, and enjoy some uninterrupted time together. 
Fixer-Upper 
Take on a household project together. Not sure where to start? Home Depot offers free home improvement classes you can take together! 

Check out the schedule at a store near you. 

Date Night Questions:
• What are some of your favorite family traditions from your childhood?
• Are there any traditions you would like for us to start together?
 
We want to hear from you! E-mail MarriedCouples@CalvaryFTL.org about your date night story for your chance to win in a prize drawing! Share your dates on social media by tagging your photos with #DateNightStories to encourage other couples with what the Lord is doing in your marriage!
The Value of Traditions  
Every family has things they do together. These traditions are so valuable when it comes to building closeness and warmth in your family! Take some time to read Priya Ramsaran’s family traditions  and then think about how you can make the ones you already have more special or create new ones!
