Lesson: First week of our series called "Big." We're going to go over the big stories in the Bible for the next few weeks. The lesson time was around 20 minutes. I will ask someone to time it next week, so I can be in that sweet spot of 20-25 minutes. We had a ministry time after the lesson and the teens showed a high level of participation. It's great to see youth engage in worship music, especially young teenagers. So sweet.
Songs: We tried a new song and our kids jumped right in. We also added Alyssa into the band mix on acoustic guitar. I love it when we have guys and girls in the band. It's such a good statement that music and playing an instrument isn't just a guy thing. Girls can certainly do more than sing and play the keyboard.
Health: Right now I would say that our services are on the road to health. Lately we've been focused on raising up leaders and creating a thriving small group culture. Discipleship and small groups are more important than services in my opinion, but that doesn't mean our services should be unhealthy. The good news is that G-d showed up despite a few bumps in the road. We have the best kids and the best leaders in the world and I can't wait to see what God does with them this fall!
