Gross Night recap and Alive coming up!

Last Friday we had our infamous annual Gross Night Event and it was a huge success. Several of my student leaders ran the games and they did an awesome job! As usual, it was messy, gross, and the room was a bit stinky afterwards. I think the most unusual thing about Gross Night this year was that I participated! I played a game of Chubby Bunny with Kellen (we used escargot instead of marshmallows) and we decided that the loser would get a pie in the face. Now I know that Kellen has cheeks like a hampster... I'm never playing that one again! It was nice to see some new faces out as well! Wahoo!

Here are some photos of the night (thanks Sue for taking them... you can find more on her Facebook):

Jasper had to use his mouth to find marshmallows in a bowl of flour

My first pie in the face!

Kellen really, really wanted to get all the escargot out of his mouth

Riley, Chelsea, and Megan tried to eat a spoon of cinnamon... bad idea!

You can tell by the look on Jessica's face that she knows those aren't apples, they're onions! Asia, Connor, and Jeff haven't figured it out yet

Mitchell was the fastest to chug a blenderized Happy Meal, making him our Gross Reigning Champ of 2012!

This coming week is Alive! which is a night of games, worship, food, and small group discussion. Starting this week, the preteen ministry, iConnect, will be joining us for games and worship. They will then return to their own room for small groups. Usually, our group will be watching a DVD series by Doug Fields and will then follow it with their small groups. However, this week is a bit different as we are announcing the new small groups and will be giving our students time to get to know each other as well as do some visioning for the remainder of the school year. This activity will be similar to what the parents did at our meeting this week - evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of our ministry and brainstorming what opportunities we have for the future. I will also be announcing the theme for Make A Movie Night which is next week. Hope to see you there!
