Today is the day of our annual Middle School Lock-In. It?s one of our major youth ministry events of the school year. We?ll have anywhere from 15-50 middle school students at the church tonight. The event starts at 7pm and goes until 8am the next morning. Sleep is optional and realistically, most of the kids will stay up all night. We always have a blast with this event. Our hope is that this event brings in some new students. We ask our students to bring some friends that wouldn?t normally come for church or youth group. This year we laid out a challenge. The student that brings the most friends gets to put a pie in the face of an adult leader of his/her choosing. I hear a whipped cream facial is good for the complexion
We (the middle school ministry team and I) would appreciate your prayers for tonight. Please join us in praying for a good turn out, for a safe night, that relationships would be established, and that this event would be a catalyst to get more students involved with our middle school youth group.
