The Porch

We had our first youth group meeting of the year last night...it is now called The Porch, based on Acts 5:12...there was a lot of change that went into this year, all in a couple of week's time...we changed the name from The Deep End...we changed the meeting room (we now meet in the former auditorium that the Big Kids used to meet in)...and we changed the structure...now, both junior and senior highers meet on the same night for dinner, hang time, and worship...then we split them up for large group teaching and small group discussion times...all in all, I think it went quite well...there were a few bumps in the road, but that's bound to happen with anything new...we'll work out the kinks as we go...but I think overall, for the 70+ kids that were there, it was a good experience...but man, does my throat hurt today...

Hey Fitz,
We're about to go though a name change too. We're going with a fishing theme- Mark 1:17 but haven't chosen names yet. But I feel your excitement and pain in walking through change! I like the Proch- very nice!

Thanks for the encouragement, Katie (which Katie is this, by the way?)...how about The Pier for yours?...appropriate for the fishing theme and for the fact that you are in Florida...just a thought...

Hey Papa Fitz..

I love the new format (including the name, unlike others who are now boycotting sigh)..
I think it's going to be really positive for the jr. high and the sr. high..

This is the other Fitz! :) Thanks for the Pier suggestion. Great Fitzs think alike- we are naming the high school group The Pier. I think the middle school will be the Harbor (def. a sheltered place where ships can anchor themselves). Congrats on the baby!! You'll be great parents!!!
