Service Length: 63 minutes
Understandable Message: This week students took turns sharing about their life change from Jesus Christ. The message was taught by several students that told stories about when they first came to know Christ, and experiences where they grew in their relationship with Him. There was a clear theme through the weekend (what is missing) and the image of the puzzle piece and they walked people through the discipleship process from accepting Christ, to small groups, to growing in your faith, serving, etc. Clear, classic message that invited students to commit/rededicate their life to Christ.
Element of Fun/Positive Environment: Capo is the smallest representation of our student ministry (of the 5 schools we chose to do You Own the Weekend), but they sure showed up in full force. So proud of them with great decorations, gobs of energy, a great skit, lots of greeters and great T-shirts. I loved their little takeaway of a puzzle piece people could come get from the stage during the last song – they’ll be a great reminder of the weekend/message for many days to come.
Music Playlist: Streetlight, How He Loves, Tear Down the Walls, Avalanche, Hold Me Now, You’ll Come
Favorite Moment: I love walking into our student room and being greeting by a giant inflatable Cougar. The Capo High School mascot head was posed in the front entrance of the youth room and it looked EPIC. Combine that with a ton of great students greeting, it made for a perfect setting for students to be welcomed to church.
