Hello this is Teacher Sarah! I had such a blessed time during the 8th grade lock-in. Thank you 8th graders and all the teachers for making it fun :) and thank God for blessing us!
FNBS was a great time for the Junior High Ministry to learn more about God and have fellowship with their brothers and sisters. Teacher Anne led the second activity with a relay race that was pretty challenging and exciting. Teacher's joined in on the fun and there were a lot of dizzy people on each team from too much spinning. Around 10 p.m. the 8th Graders began their lockin and it was filled with fun and at the same time it was God Centered. We enjoyed eachothers company through God and it was marvelous. We began the night with an ice breaker, each 8th grader received a survey last Sunday and today we had each 8th Grader stand up and read their interviews to their peers. After this we exchanged ideas on what categories to use for our Jeopoardy Game on TV. After the 8th graders gave us their ideas, we allowed the 8th graders some free time in the chapel while Teacher Sarah, Teacher Vince, and Teacher Eric came up with some pretty good questions. The 8th grade Girls took on the 8th Grade Guys in a friendly match of Jeopoardy and the Girls humbly beat the Guys in this epic friendly battle. I will not disclose the score to save some of my 8th grade guys pride. haha. After the game of Jeopoardy, T. Eric and T. David led us in praise. The 8th graders joined together in a circle and we sang Send Revival and Kindness and then we closed in prayer. We than headed out to Denny's for dinner and it was a great time to satisfy our hunger and enjoy each other's company in fellowship. We than head back to church with most of us feeling the effects of food coma. We than all brushed our teeth and washed up and used the rest room. We than joined together for a quiet time discussion prepared by T. Sarah from Galatians Chapter 6. We discussed our feelings about Chapter 6 of Galatians and each shared our input on the Verse that really stuck with us. T. Sarah than provided her own example and closed us in prayer. Everybody woke up around 10 a.m. and got ready for our next event which was High School Musical 3 at Puente Hills Mall Amc Theatres. The showing was at 11:20 a.m. I want to say the movie was more satisfying towards our sisters, but us brothers are willing to take one for the team sometimes :) We than had lunch at the food court and allowed an hour of free time in the mall, T. Sarah supervised the Girls and T. Vince took the guys to go play some games at TILT because the girls were shopping. The rest of the day was spent at church cleaning up after ourselves and taking ownership of our chapel.
