Clubhouse, BigHouse, Our House

Last night our new Clubhouse ministry got off to a roaring start.

Fifty-three fourth and fifth graders plus nine volunteers equaled eighteen pre-teens making professions of faith in Christ for the first time.

Along the way, they shared dinner together, heard from Ryan Gordon our Director of Children’s Ministry, broke into small discussion groups, and prayed.

Clubhouse prepares the way for students to get read for our Big House Youth Ministry — which, not coincidentally, also launched its fall season last night.

Approximately 200 students met in our Corner Campus, enjoyed a spaghetti supper, entered into worship with the Big House Band, and then heard about the Gospel of Matthew from John Pavlovitz

Apparently, some of them wanted to sit on the front row and couldn’t . . .

All in all, a very satisfying night in the life of our church.

Our House is a pleasant little song from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.  It has nothing to do with the subject of this post, but it has “house” in the title, so I thought I’d share it with you here.
