Last Night in The Loft:
Students arrived and seemed to be excited to be gathering together.
We had several first time guests, which is always fantstic. One of the young ladies who is on our "5 Friends I'm praying for Poster" brought two of her friends. It's wonderful to see youth who are excited about learning from God's Word and a passion to reach their friends.
I taught through the entire book of Ruth in 35 minutes. Focusing in on three aspects of Ruth's life that jump out at me:
Ruth's Love for Naomi
Ruth's Respect for Naomi
The redemption of Ruth by Boaz.
We looked at additional verses about love, respect and redemption. The students then went to their PODz and talked about Ruth and prayed together.
Hang Time included some great tasting cupcakes a couple of our young ladies prepared for the group, a couple of bags of chips, bunch of cookies, some fruit and veggies and dip. Along with the cupcakes our strawberry kiwi slushees made in the machine loaned to us by Sea Freeze were a smash!
Lots of games were played and I enjoyed sitting around and talking with the students and watching them build relationships with each other. I think youth group last night was really good and I would give it an A.
