Sometimes you have everything planned but you feel like you need to change it up. So that's what we did. We were going to teach about worship and have communion but we decided to push that back to another week.
We went ahead and set out all the Hang Time junk food up front at the beginning. Let the students load up their snack trays. Then we had them all find a comfortable place to sit in the room and we showed Noah's Arc on the big screen and flat screens.
We have watched this film in the past but it has been a long time. So we introduced it to a bunch of students. Noah's Arc is all about a local pro surfer, Noah Snyder, and his friends coming to know Christ. The students were glued to the movie.
I wrapped it up at the end reminding students of the power of the "invite". They have friends just waiting to be invited to church/youth group. Noah had a friend invite him and he went. Now who knows how many people have been impacted by Noah's testimony?
I also reminded them, as we saw in the documentary film, that when we are following Christ other people will see the difference in our lives.
