Breakdancing at Verve! (see Pic)
Verve, the youth ministry of Substance, just had their kick-off. And man: it was off the hook! We had record attendance of young people. Our very own Dj Cousins mixed the event. And Pastor Nick threw down God’s word in a way that only he could. (I love that guy). And by the way… Nick is the chaplain for the Miami Dolphins this weekend! So pray for him as he does their chapel service on Sat! But Seriously. God is the most creative, fun, exciting and holy force in the universe. So why can’t our services reflect those same aspects of God?
If you haven’t noticed, our family ministries have really stepped it up. It’s been a staff-wide effort to make sure we’ve got an amazing discipleship program for all ages. And of course, we also saw this mentality hit our children’s ministry with Family Fun Night this Friday. We already have over 200 people who’ve RSVP’d (just email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure there’s enough free food for dinner). So here’s the scoop:
5:30 taco dinner… fun / short kids program…
6:45 carnival games, ice-cream Sundays, etc. till 8 pm. My wife & I will be chillin’ there too!
But keep your eyes peeled because there is some exciting stuff coming down the pike for both Verve and Kids Connection. At Substance, we really want to take care of our families. In fact, we are setting our sights on becoming a premier place for family ministry. But in the meantime, get involved so we can accelerate the process!
Love you guys! So, Verve and Kids Connection… keep up the great work!
