Friday night, our student ministry hosted a Rockathon. It was supposed to be a fundraiser for camp but kids weren't really into that idea. Since it was already planned before our new Interim Student Minister arrived, we decided to keep the event and just make it open to anyone who wanted to come. It ended up being a great night of fun and fellowship for the ones who were there.
Since we were without a Student Minister during the planning, Dan staffed the event and marked himself down to work from 8:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. He took Jonah with him. Micah and I worked from 8:00 until 10:00 p.m. I feel sure that little wild child could have hung in there several more hours.
About an hour into the event, Micah discovered the snack table...and the OREOS!
Meet Jessica, my sister! Except, not really. But, lots of people think we look alike. Then, they ask if we are sisters. Not one person, LOTS of them. That's totally okay though because I love her. She and her husband Jon just joined our student ministry during this Interim period. I keep telling her that she is definitely "Most Popular" around here these days. The students adore her. Their baby, Eli, is exactly one year and one week younger than Micah. And, oh so sweet!
Our amazing Maintenance Supervisor was up there hanging out for a while with us. Dan (and our church) love John!
There were so many other fun things that happened after we left but I didn't leave my camera there so you just have to use your imagination. It was fun to hang with the students for the night. We are looking forward to summer full of youth events and growing closer to God with them over that time!
