“Back to School”

What a night. This month’s LIFE NIGHT had the theme of “Back to School.” The youth leaders did a great job in everything they were responsible for during the service. I get more and more excited every time we get to do something together because they are stepping out in confidence and not afraid of new challenges. It was great to see Martin begin everything and make everyone feel welcome, especially the first time visitors, Sandra led a raffle give-away of a number of different school items, Chuy did the announcements, and Jose Luis led the “Quien Quiere Quinientos” game (a run-off of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.” A part from that, they all four led a couple other ice-breaker games at the beginning. Mili and the rest of the youth band did a great job in leading worship and I did a great job in stretching a 10 minute message into almost an hour! (oops!). That didn’t stop just about every student coming forward for prayer. It’s amazing to me that each time we have one of these services, the youth flood the altars and are experiencing God! What was really neat about that was seeing youth praying for youth!

It was a real fun night and the message I gave had to do with God doing NEW THINGS in our youth group this next year and in our lives. I’m excited to see what God will do and the surprises he has for us. The next time we have a LIFE NIGHT will be at the end of October and the four student leaders will be organizing everything…I can’t wait to see what happens!
