One of the highlights of my week happens near the beginning of each of our Wednesdays – when we all gather around to worship. These students have amazing energy and passion for Christ. It’s one of those things you have to experience to understand.
 
I’m excited to share with you the long awaited calendar. The following attachment covers most of the activities from now until the end of the calendar year. As always, more info and signups are available on our website under “Events & Calendar“. Hard copies are available in the Youth Center.

I so enjoy the love and energy that our students have for Jesus and for each other. It’s apparent each time we’re together. Let me encourage you to challenge your students to be inviting their friends to our programs and activities. This loving group is a great place for their friends to connect and learn about the love of Christ.
 
As many of you know we’re working to bring greater clarity and emphasis to our two programs, making both our Jr. High and Sr. High ministries more effective. This will be most evident on Wednesday evenings. In order to make this happen, we’re working to build a second Youth Worship Band. If your student is interested in participating, please have them complete an application and schedule an audition.

Home… safe and sound.  ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz………….
 
 


2016-07-29 Mission Indy Day 6

Today was another productive and amazing day. Our ministry ran later into the night, so this will be brief.
 
We were able to complete all of our ministry projects, and several that we didn’t think we’d be able to get to. One special treat – we built a carpetball table from scratch for their teen game room. It’s amazing, and was used tonight.
 
We had our final night of Elementary Club, with about 60 kids again. 8 kids made a significant spiritual decision today.
 
We finished our evening with their weekly Teen Club. Student enjoyed food, music, dancing, games, and a gospel presentation. Our group did a great job connecting with the teens.
 
In the morning we’ll pack up and clean. We’re stopping at a park for lunch, then spending several hours relaxing and exploring at Ohio Caverns.
 
For those of you picking up students, we plan to be back at our scheduled time. Pickup at the church is still 10:30 pm. Everyone on the team is expected to help unpack and cleanup. If we’re running more than 15 minutes early/late, we’ll do our best to contact you in advance.
