At the church where I volunteer we celebrated our biggest outreach event on Friday. Thousands of junior high students showed up to completely encompass the church. There was everything from bungee-trampolines to laser tag to karaoke and photo booths, inflatable games and dodgeball. It was insane- it was overwhelming and LOUD and busy and pretty incredible.
On Sunday at church my girls couldn’t stop talking about it. They had all invited friends from school (some with more success than others) and for the first time their invitations had been accepted. They were able to be the kids from the “cool church” and impress their buddies and run everywhere and make an unforgettable impression. It made inviting people to church accessible to them, and I think they’ll do it again.
Postcards to all four of my brave girls.
