The Barrons are associated with Northwoods Baptist Church in Flat Rock where Robert serves as pastor. The family visits Christian Park on the weekends and conduct church services for the residents. They also entertain the residents and make homemade maple syrup and ice cream for the residents to enjoy. They set up a special farm tour for the residents last year and even brought a baby cow on the bus so the residents could get close to it.
