We had CHIP EXTRAVAGANZA! I had boxes of chips I needed to get rid of so we put out 300 bags of chips and about 200 were consumed!! Crazy!
The students enjoyed their time hanging out together with their leaders during Hang Time. Some great ping pong games were played, students were out on the lot throwing the football, many just sitting around talking. I look forward to the day that our youth room is complete so we can all hang in the same room during Hang Time.
Our lesson was compliments of Student Life. We took a look in Genesis 1 at how God has provided for us. He's given us this amazing planet to sustain our life. He also gave us life and eternal life. For what he has given us we should live a life of thankfulness and praise to him.
Cool thing about this lesson is that on the other side of the wall the Parent Pod were doing the exact same lesson together. Hopefully this will spark some discussion time about thankfulness at home this week.
December will be a fun month for Contagious Youth. This Sunday we have a Christmas Bible study. The 13th is our annual Contagious Christmas Party, students will bring a cheap wrapped gift and their favorite Christmas party food. The 20th is our annual Christmas Bowl (bowling, our biggest attended event last year). The 27th is Holiday @ the Hut, students meet with me and some of their leaders at Pizza Hut for supper together. All that followed by Winterfest.
