Attendance: Below Average
Lesson Topic: STUFF week three(toast)
'Fun Factor': Above Average
Volunteer Involvement: Below Average
Music: Average
Lesson Quality: Above average
Length of Lesson: Longer than usual
Student Response: Above Average

We were away at our annual volunteer leader retreat this weekend so Josh Griffin and others stepped up to run our programs. From what I've been told the lesson was a little longer than usual but that was partly because Josh crammed it full of creative elements that the students loved. This week was the toughetst/most abstract lesson of the three and going into the weekend I felt like it could be a tough one for the kids to grasp. I talked to my 7th grade daughter about it and she felt like it was really good, but a little hard to understand. For toast, we used the idea that when you mess with the timer on the toaster, the toast never turns out quite right.....the same is true in life: God has perfect timing and trusting it helps life turn out better. There was more to it than that, but that was the basic idea.

I too hope that we see this as a super series in the near future!

A few weeks back I "borrowed" your idea to post a report on our weekly gathering. It's a great way to keep track of how things are going...so thanks for the ideas!
