Sunday night we had a great time together. We had several guests, a couple of students who recently moved to the beach. We picked up some pizzas and Mt. Dews and H2o's.
Students spent about an hour hanging out, talking, playing in the ocean, building sand castles and body boarding. Following hang time the students got into their PODz and discussed the week's lesson they did in their Rootworks book. Each week there is a lesson from Philippians for the students to work through and answer questions. We then get together and discuss the lesson and go through the verses and answers together. It's great to see that many of them are actually taking the time during their summer to dig into the Word. We are praying this creates a habit in their life.
Rootworks is put out by Simply Youth Ministry and is fully editable and you can make it your own. I even attached a pdf version in a weekly parents update so they can follow along and even spark some discussion at home.
