We said, "See ya later 2017", at Youth Group and Sunday School this past week. We wrapped up youth group with a fun 'Play it Forward' activity where students split into groups and dispersed downtown and around church to complete challenges and pass them on to others. Students had a lot of fun! We ended the night with hot coco, donuts and card making for those who are homebound from our congregation.
As for Sunday School, the 5th and 6th graders enjoyed donuts and watching God's Not Dead. The 7th and 8th grade class watched videos from lessons that weren't covered this semester and had conversations about questions like, "Do cremated people go to heaven?" and "Why did Jesus go to hell?". Students have begun to embrace diving deeper into these kind of questions and discovering that sometimes there isn't a black or white answer. See you next year!
