If you don’t know anything about it, our young adults, ELEVATION, treated the whole church to a Sunday afternoon picnic. I arrived at the recreation complex where the event was held not really thinking about what I would soon witness. For starters, the turnout was one of the largest for a picnic that our church has ever had. Youth and young adults made up at least fifty percent of the group. The difference…the food was being organized by young adults, the hamburgers and hotdogs were being grilled by young adults. The games and recreation were organized by young adults. FOR THE RECORD: the whole thing was conceived, planned, organized and carried out by young adults.
For anything like this to take place it takes good leadership and for that I would like to thank those at the top of the heap: Vance & Myra, Derek & Mela, and Brian & Andrea who led this young adult crew to a glorious success at serving our body of believers.
Now understand that other ages contributed to the menu and to the recreation but that’s what family does. One of my highlights for the afternoon was observing the kick ball game with Bill Burkard pitching and just about every age in the church playing on one of the teams.
I see a generation rising up to take their place in leadership in all areas of our church.
I applaud them for their love and commitment to God, each other and the family here at the Warehouse Church.
