wednesday nights at northstar

our first wednesday night went great with the students. we are excited about what God has in store. here are some pictures from the night. we meet in the basement of our church house, and it reminds so much of my youth house growing up.

the summer after i became a Christian i was hanging out with my youth minister and church friends all of the time. one day, probably to get us out of his hair, john (my youth minister) told us to go and get paint SAMPLES from walmart so we could eventually paint the house set aside for youth ministry. instead of getting samples, we purchased the paint on the church account. we were young- i don't have any other excuse.

so i spent that summer painting our youth house with some other friends and with brushes- no rollers. that's why it took us all summer i suppose. community formed in our lives that summer. we became a team, and even though the purchase was a surprise to john, we gained ownership in a ministry that was supposed to be for us.

pray for unity in the students

pray that they would gain a vision for what God wants to do through the students of CDA
