The Youth Week Worldwide Cruise departs today! You will not want to miss this fictional adventure with a different Port of Call each day, as well as many festive On-board Activities! We will be pulling restaurants and attractions from pretty much every place I ever served a church, including sometimes several in one day! To paraphrase Walt Disney, "If I can dream it, we can DO it!" Each day will be laid out like it would have been in one of my summer brochures, complete with times. Exactly where we are when we do things "at the church" will remain a mystery! Here is the schedule for Sunday:
6 PM- All students and their families are invited to join us for the Captain's Dinner in the Fellowship Hall, featuring catering by Stamey's BBQ! This is a great opportunity to meet your crew (our fabulous Youth Ministry Team) as they serve you dinner. You can also connect with passengers you may not yet know as we play some dreaded Name Games. It's a great time to get your passports that serve as tickets for the rest of the cruise. And did I mention it is all-you-can-eat? Plus have your picture taken with a very special guest- and it's not Jerry Hanbery! Then be sure and stick around for an evening of entertainment.
7 PM- We set sail and celebrate with a Bon Voyage Party! The evening will begin with a concert from our favorite Slinky players- Lost And Found! You'll hear Lions, Slide Girl, Baby and many other classics! Be sure and come dressed in blue- 'cause that's what slide girls do! A skit featuring some of your peers will follow, helping us introduce our theme and scripture for the week for the week. Our scripture comes from 1 Thessalonians 2:8- "We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel, but our very lives as well, because you have become do dear to us." This amazing evening will wrap-up with the improvisational antics of CPR- Carl, Pete and Ringo (I know they broke up 10 years ago, but this is my dream week, so shut up!)! You and your family and friends will become part of the show, so don't miss out on the fun. Plus there will be prizes and surprises galore as we set sail on our week-long adventure, going worldwide to Save the Humans! It's all over by 9:30. Join us- and Stein Auf! See you next Thursday for Day 2 of this fabulous fictional adventure!!!
Because of Jesus,
