the Edge in review – December 1, 2010

Tonight has been a great night!  Here’s the run down on the evening.

Game Time – Four Team Kickball.  It’s chaos with rules.  Two games of kickball overlapping each other, multiple runners on a base, tons of laughter and fun.  The whole point is for students to hang out and spend time together.  It worked great.
Announcements – 
1. Christmas Service Projects – Wednesday, December 15th we are all meeting for youth group at 6:30 and then heading out for a variety of service projects around the town.  If you’d like to go and help drive, we can use some drivers.  Contact us and let us know.
2. Nerf Wars – Christmas Break, Tuesday December 28th
3. Video Game Challenge – Wednesday, December 29th

Minute to Win It – We did a game called Bobble Head where you have to shake a pedometer attached to a hat 125 times in a minute.  Colten Farnsley did it 81 times, and won some Cry Babies candy.  He was excited, and a little woozy.
Memory Verse Challenge – Our sixth grade girls seem to win almost every week.  Alivia Chenoweth, Korrigan Glackman, Madison Adkins, and Kate Frazee all won tonight.  Congrats girls!
Lesson – The Story
Brian Hogan walked the students through a booklet called “The Story”.  It’s the gospel in a way that is easy to understand.  Your student should have a copy of the book with them tonight.  Ask to see it, and then go through it and discuss it with them.  If they’ve lost it, you can find a digital copy on on the home page.  Check it out.
All of the students are in small groups right now, which I think is the most important and best part of the night.

We love partnering with each of you in your student’s life.  YOU are the most important influence by FAR.  Never doubt it.  Let me know how we can help work better together.
