We had a good weekend with a few fun elements. Matt Hall who just happens to be our shortest jr. high team member taught the final weekend of 'It's Okay to Be Short' and did a great job. Instead of just a band, we had an entire jr. high choir (something we do about every 6 weeks or so).

Lately we've been having a ton of first-time visitors which has been exciting to see. I'm constantly surprised by who brings friends. It's usually not the super popular core kids but the average attenders who are involved but not overly. My hunch is that our core kids are the students who have the most 'churched' friends and aren't rubbing shoulders with non-believers as much as other students are....something we need to change!

About students bringing their friends. One thing our group started doing was sending a letter to the bringer encouraging them for bringing a friend along etc. etc. The students have been very excited to get mail and to know that the workers are seeing their steps of faith. It has been a great tool for encouraging positive steps of faith.
