So…as the students prepare for the end of school, at youth group we’ve been preparing our youth service for this coming Sunday! We’re hoping the service will be an invitation for people to open up, get real with one another, and come to Jesus for breakthrough kind of love. Each one will share a part of themselves and we’ll have a special testimony as well!! We’re also hoping to really rock out with some new music with one of the students joining us on the electric guitar-woohoo!!! Besides working hard on that, we’ve also been working hard at reaching our goal for the upcoming JH mission trip!! We shoveled mulch on Saturday for a single mom, and of course, the flamingos are still a huge hit. They were even invited to Melissa and William’s wedding on Saturday and donned formal attire for the occasion! During Discovery hour we talked about judging others and what God thinks about judgement. We watched Susan Boyle on Britain’s Got Talent (aka American Idol) and were stunned by how the appearance didn’t match the performance. It was a huge reminder that God makes us all unique and that we need to love people first-not judge-and that we’ll reap huge rewards by being like Jesus in this part of our lives.
