What Dad Really Wants This Father’s Day

main image

It’s that time of year again. Father’s Day is right around the corner and you have no idea what to get for him! You’ve probably seen all of the websites boasting the top ten gifts you can get for your dad or the best activities to plan for him. Let me tell doesn’t work. My dad doesn’t seem to fit into the mold that the internet wants him to fit in. All fathers are unique, but they also tend to fit into categories! Lucky for you, we here at Rock Springs Church have put together a comprehensive catalog to make this day just a little easier!

The “Maximum Effort, Minimal Results” Dad

This Dad is always working on a new project. Unfortunately, he probably hasn’t finished the old one.

Recommended Gift: A punching bag and boxing gloves

The Stereotypical “Cool Dad”

This dad thinks he defies all expectations. However, he is exactly what you would expect. Shhhh...don’t tell him.

Recommended gift: Socks with Sandals

The Silent but Deadly Dad (SBD) 

He’s judging you. Silently. He may not say anything to you directly, but man, if looks could kill. 

Recommended gift: Sunglasses

Mr. Fix It

This is the kind of dad that all dads believe they are. Roof leaking? This dad’s got your long as you’re okay with him breaking a window in the process.

Recommended gift: Tinker toys, Legos, or Lincoln Logs

The “Dad Joke” dad

You already know. Every dad has a little bit of this dad inside of them, just waiting to come out. Some dads, however, take it to the next level.

Recommended Gift: "Exceptionally Bad Dad Jokes" via Amazon

The Bear

Big, burly, beard… Best. Hugs. EVER. You just can’t see why everyone thinks he’s scary at first.

Recommended gift: A flannel? A cozy, weighted blanket? Honestly, this dad probably just wants your time and a hug

The Social Butterfly

He wants to meet all your friends. In fact, he’s better friends with your friends than you are, which is weird considering he doesn’t even know how to use his cell phone.

Recommended Gift: Flip phone

The Social Escape Artist

You want him to meet all your friends. Seriously, they’re going to love him.  Wait, where did he go?

Recommended Gift: A ghillie suit

If we didn’t include your favorite kind of dad, we apologize! Dads really do come in all shapes and sizes. Maybe your dad fits into more than one category! Regardless of which dad you have, make sure to honor them in a special way this year!

Celebrating the Fourth of July

Celebrating the Fourth of July 

On July 4th, over 240 years ago, Congress officially signed the Declaration of Independence signifying the genesis of a liberated country. 

It wasn’t until 1787 that the war was over, though.  In those 11 years, countless lives were lost, power shifted back and forth, and the future of a now great nation hung in the balance.  After a decade-long struggle, the hard-fought battle for freedom was won due to the innumerable sacrifices of it’s loyal citizens.  

This weekend, Americans will gather around BBQs, enjoying the carefree luxury of living in a free country.  This celebration allows each of us, no matter our background, to fully reflect on the precious gift of our liberties.  

As we come together to take part in the traditional festivities of hot dogs, star-spangled paraphernalia, and scintillating fireworks, let us take a moment to remember the true reason this day exists.  Our forefathers came to this land in order to escape the crushing religious persecution.  

Since the days of the revolution, thousands more from across the world have immigrated here to enjoy our freedoms as well.  In many countries, however, the institution of individual worship still does not exist.  

This is something that we as Americans can so easily take for granted.  So let us, on this day especially, take the time to remember the struggle of those who have come before us so that we may worship God without fear.  Let us thank God for the blessings He has bestowed on this country, including its establishment so many years ago.  

And let us continue to freely share the good news of Jesus Christ so that more Americans may come to know His endless blessings.  

May God bless you, your families, and our churches.  And may God bless America.  

We'll be celebrating America in a special way this Sunday with Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell!
