Youth Night

This was not the first Youth Night event at Nashville Christian Church but it might have been the first time the congregation got so involved. Mr. G and my mom and I thought it would be a good idea to show our church family just what we do every Sunday morning with our youth. What better way to do that then to ask the crowd to join in. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

We start every Sunday morning church service with what we call "The Ball Game" where the kids see how many times they can pass the ball around our circle before the song is over. This time we did it a bit different.The crowd had to pass the ball from one person to the next up and down the rows. Here is a church elder and his wife quickly passing the ball. We have some competitive people in our church family.

Here are the kids along the side helping out as everyone watches.

This picture is from a song called "The Butterfly Song" and here the kids are acting like crocodiles. You can see my mom sitting up front holding one of our youngest in the group who had just fallen off the stage onto her head. Good thing prayer time was right after that.

This song is both inspirational and a leg work out. It is "Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam" and every time the word "Sunbeam" is sung you have to hop out of your seat. It is a VERY long song so by the end our congregation was tired.

Here is our kids showing the adults just how it is to be done. Oh to have that kind of energy.

And then "The Train." According to the lyrics of the song 'this train is bound for glory'....

But unfortunately one of the elders has seemed to have fallen behind, but you know how those elders are.

Then we finished the evening with one of our finest. This young man is a junior in high school and is always eager to fill in at the pulpit when needed. He did another fabulous job. Unfortunately, we thought it would be a good idea to provide the congregation with popcorn during the preaching just like we usually do on Sunday mornings with the kids. Remind me next time not to use paper bags. Apparently the popcorn was really good because you could hear the crinkling of paper bags all through out the church.
And that concluded our Youth Night. Until next time....
