We started the night with a recap video of the past year.
After the video, the band played Uprising by the Muse. They did a great job, but not nearly as many students knew the song as we anticipated.
We asked students to fill out a paper that would help us know how they would like to be involved on Wednesday nights. We got a great response and it has allowed us to start using more students. This has drastically changed the atmosphere of our ministry for the better. During an evaluation meeting with a handful of juniors and seniors, this was their number one positive comment- student involvement.
Andrew talked with the students about the 3 types of forgiveness students should be practicing: forgiving others, asking others to forgive you, and forgiving yourself.
Creative Element: After the message, during the music, Andrew invited students to come forward and write a response on a fake brick wall. Some students wrote about forgiving a certain person. Others wrote about forgiving themselves. Several praised God for his forgiveness.
