This past week, we had fun making our way through the fields of Crot's Corn Maze and it was officially announced that I have been chosen to be your new youth pastor! I must admit I am thrilled for this opportunity--I love all of you guys already! However, this is a first time experience for me and I hope you will be patient as I learn how to lead you effectively. My ears are always open to your questions and opinions and advice.
Speaking of which...allow me to take a "rabbit trail." We hope to open up a "Thought Box" that will be permanently set up in the youth room where you can write a question on a slip of paper and slide it in there without having to pose your questions publically. If you leave a question in the box you can be assured that your name will never be publically announced.
Ok, before I close this first official post of Spirit Fire, I wanted to remind you to come on Sunday evening prepared to have a great time getting to know one another through some crazy ridiculous games. :D Also, when we sit down for the more "official" part of our meeting together, we will begin a multi-week study that will help us all learn to focus more on developing a deeper relationship with Jesus. It should be interactive and quite enjoyable (don't worry, if I get too boring and start rambling on and on and on Kevin will stop the madness!! ha,ha!)
