Our Goals at Fun Unleashed:

1. To glorify God in everything we do. Our relationship with God is our most important priority. Every part of our business is developed, executed and evaluated through His direction. "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;" Colossians 3:23

2. Create loving lasting memories. We want to create a fun safe place for family and friends to gather while providing unforgettable heartfelt memories where every child is made to feel special and loved as they laugh and play unleashing the most fun possible. Children are a gift from the Lord and making available this kind of environment brings families closer together in love and builds a stronger bond between parents, children and siblings.

3. Giving back to the community. Fun Unleashed is not just another business, it's a ministry. Fun Unleashed is committed to meeting the needs within our local community as well as those around the world. Having both been raised in State College and State High Graduates we value many of the qualities of our community and have chosen to invest in it.

Who are we?

We are Eric & Kimberly Rittenhouse the managers of Fun Unleashed. We believe God is the creator of all things and therefore is also the "Owner" of Fun Unleashed and has entrusted us to be the servants of His business. We have been blessed with six wonderful children. Hannah Marie, Zachariah, Sarah, Elijah, Aleah and Victoriah. Due to a Neural Tube Defect and other complications the doctors strongly recommended termination of Kim's pregnancy with Sarah. We're so thankful that we chose Life. From the very moment God created her and gave her the breath of life, she has been a witness of God's love. She touched our lives during the five hours we had with her before she went home to be with Jesus. Although we miss her tremendously, we look forward to the day we'll see her again in Heaven. When we first met we knew that we would one day adopt and it was such a wonderful experience that we decided to do it again. Two of our children have joined our family through foreign adoption. If you or anyone you know is considering adoption or has had complications with a pregnancy please contact us as we would be privileged to share with you.

Well over twenty years ago we came into a "relationship" with the God of all creation, through His son Jesus Christ. Why do we highlight relationship? Many people go through life claiming to be a "Christian" yet don't do the things God has commanded us to do. Some may go to church, others do charitable works and yet some may feel that they are just a good person. According to Jesus we must have a daily relationship with him, not just on Sundays or during the Holidays. Many of us have a relationship with our spouse, children, co-workers and yet have very limited time with God. In fact many times people only use His name in vain. Christians were called Christians because they were Christ-like. Don't misunderstand, its not the works that save us but the faith in Jesus that does. When we have the faith in Christ then we also do the works that He did.

You see the Bible says, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few be that find it." Matthew 7:13-14. So many are deceived into thinking that by believing in God and by being a "good" person they'll get to go to Heaven. Yet, the Bible is very clear that you must pray and ask Jesus into your life and stop doing the things that displease God; this is how you become saved-born again-assured of going to Heaven: "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he can not see the kingdom of God." John 3:3. It's our responsibility to read the Bible and talk to God daily to find out how God wants us to live. Sure, God knows that we are not perfect and we'll mess-up. That's why He sent His Son Jesus, so we can ask for God's forgiveness and turn from our sin.

For those of you who may not have a relationship with Jesus, it's our prayer that you would pray and invite Him into your life.

STEPS TO BEGIN A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10


1. KNOW God loves you not for what you do, but for who you are. He has a wonderful plan for your life.

2. ADMIT to God that you make mistakes, that you sin, and you need God in control of your life, otherwise your life leads to death, both spiritual and physical.

3. UNDERSTAND Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only means to bring you into a full relationship with God. His death on the cross was necessary to cover the cost of your sins and He did it for you. In the Old Testament they had to sacrifice many animals to cover their sins. Jesus came as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.

4. DECLARE Pray to God right now and sincerely seek forgiveness for your sins. Tell God your sorry and ask Jesus to be the Savior of your past and the Lord of your present and future.

5. SAMPLE PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life and make me into the kind of person you want me to be.

6. CELEBRATE as you stand as a new person in the eyes of God. The old sin and shame are gone and you are ready to discover your purpose in life. Begin to walk with God daily by reading your Bible and talking to Him (as your closest friend). Let the spirit of God work in and through you as you begin your new life. Be sure to attend a church that preaches salvation and speaks often of Jesus' return.

As Crystal Lewis sings ... "People get ready. Jesus is coming. Soon we'll be going home ..." The first time Jesus came to earth He came as a baby in a manger. He came to die on the cross for our sins. The next time He returns to earth He'll be coming in the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. For those of you in a troubled situation call out to God and trust Him because he is faithful and He'll bring you through. Life is like the seasons and some of the seasons we pass through are difficult and even painful but as the seasons change so will our situation. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; Lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct they paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil." Proverbs 3: 5-7.

For those of you who are already born again and daily walking with the Lord, we pray that the Lord would grant you courage and wisdom to shine His light and be His voice in our world. Judging by the daily news headlines and the latest hit movie, it's a message that is desperately needed. May you continue in the faith and give Him the gift of your time. Our lives become so full & busy with "things". How much time & energy do we give the Lord? How the Lord must long to tell His children, "Make more time for Me." We all need to pray a little more, sing/praise God a little more, go to church a little more, and give unselfishly a little more. For God has been so good to us all. If you already have a personal relationship with the Lord share the attached salvation message with someone for today is the day of salvation for tomorrow may be too late.

If you or someone you know has a need or questions about a relationship with the Lord, please let us know, it would be our privilege to share with you and agree with you in prayer. It's our prayer that we'll all be ready when we see Jesus face to face. Seek Him with your heart and love Him with your life.
