Spring Fever

Due to our very short summer and our very LONG winter, what do Minnesotans do with good weather? We jump at every chance and opportunity to be outside of course!! Wednesday night was so beautiful, that we moved our junior high program outside, behind the church. It was gorgeous!! We launched our Junior High Olympic Games; listened to Trav's message about being an unlikely hero; and worshipped around a bonfire. These are the nights that we both agree...we love youth ministry!!

My man, Travy...bringin' it to those junior highers!

Me with some of our wonderful volunteers, Jackie and Ellie, enjoying a beautiful Wednesday night!

Some more great volunteers, Drew, Ryan, and Nathan, demonstrating the "catepillar push-ups" we were about to have the students do...event #1 of the Junior High Olympics!

Warning: Personal Bias....The cutest youth Pastor in the whole world!

Students doing event #2...human chain sit-ups...harder than it looks I might add.

The classic "sit on your neighbor's lap and make a human chair" game, event the look on Dede Gibson's face!

Never one to be camera shy, who knows when you might need to demonstrate Spiderman's web pose??
