Wednesday Reflections

Overall, I thought it was a really good night.  Our crowd was 72 teens which is right on our average for this school year.  It was a cold, nasty day in Clinton, so to hit the average is nice.  But I’m ready for us to take the next step.

It was the 2nd week in a row to do something different w/ the chairs.  Last week was no chairs.  This week was a total new arrangement.  It’s crazy how much moving chairs around can change things up.

Jr. High

  • Crowd: 46; good crowd but not great; tired of us not breaking through the 50 barrier.  They were in a GOOD mood w/ lots of energy, but were still pretty well behaved
  • Game: “clothespin on peoples faces game” – 4 teams of 3, 2 of the team members pinned as many clothespins as the could in 1 minute on the other ones face.  The winning team had 28.  Why I didn’t take a picture I’ll never know.  It was fun.
  • Music: Tom Edwards Band led worship (Josh is in North Carolina leading worship for 180); Tom led for our DNow a few weeks ago & picked up right where he left off w/ our group.
  • Talk:  I answered the question “Why Am I Here?” by looking at the life of Esther & Jeremiah 1:5.  I concluded by saying something like “I don’t know why you are where you are, but I know that God has you there for His purpose.”

Sr. High

  • Crowd: 26; again good crowd but not great
  • Music: The group seemed to really enjoy having Tom back w/ us.  I love Tom’s lyrics because most our straight out of Scripture
  • Talk: I began by reading 2 Corinthians 5:17 & each teen prayed (or pretended like they were praying) for a friend who doesn’t know Jesus, we then prayed for courage to tell them about Jesus or to invite them to church; the rest of the talk was almost identical to the Jr. High Service
