As Seen on: LOST (4.10.2013)
Additional Resources Used: 2 video clips from LOST (1×07 – The Moth)
Element of Fun: Fellowship time over dinner, Switch-a-Roo (in which two contestants compete to see who can be the first to detect changes in each others’ appearance).
What Worked: Tonight we welcomed a new student who has been struggling in his own church’s youth ministry, and he really seemed to click and got a lot out of our time together. The lesson really seemed to land right where several of our teens needed it. Another student we have not seen in a while returned tonight and I found out afterwards that she really needed to hear what we shared tonight. Our game/challenge was a lot of fun, and even managed to pit a female student against her boyfriend. Our music was better this week. Our hang out time allowed for some good conversation to take place.
What Needs Work: The space in the HoP is not the greatest and that was shown tonight. The leader who was bringing food arriving late.
Summary: Tonight was another good, solid evening of ministry that left me feeling very encouraged at what God is doing in and through our teens.
