What I enjoy most about youth group is... • My greatest challenge is...

2017: The games and learning about topics during the lesson related to my life at that time. • I have a difficult time putting God first in the things that I do. 2019: Coming to a place where people are kind and are willing to put others first. • Being too complacent and not putting myself out there, spiritually wise. – Justin

2017: That we do something fun every time. And that we have fun events like the Mall Hunt, and the Cook-Off. • Dealing with the loud noises and ( name :) screaming like a little girl with bronchitis. Please hit puberty. 2019: Getting together with people my age. I normally stay at home alone with my mom, so this helps me socialize. • Making friends outside of church. Youth group is really the only place I can fit in and make friends easily. – Logan

2017: The friendships and fellowship with the leaders. • Being patient. 2019: I like that I can come to youth group and just be myself. Also, there are great leaders that enjoy being with and connection to the students. The retreats are a blast. • Procrastination. – Jared

2017: The lessons and learning more and more meaningful / memorable lessons. • My sportsmanship and keeping a relationship with Christ. – Jagger

2017: The opportunity to minister to the youth in my church: building relationships, encouraging, challenging them spiritually and sharing my past experiences to help them with their current experiences. 2019: To be able to influence students positively. Working as a team with unified leaders. • Students’ apathy. – Tina

2017: I enjoy seeing kids make the decision to change from a "normal" middle schooler to a growing, mature follower of Christ. • Being patient enough to let God do His work through the students. – Jesse

2017: How we can have a conversation with other people about God. • To spread the Word of God. – Mackenzy

2017: Friends. Games. • Talking about God. 2019: Fun events and games. • In life: school. In youth group: growing spiritually. – Kyle

2019: Learning the symbolism of the bible • Connecting with god. – JJ

2017: Being around new people. • Public speaking. – Caleb

2017: game time – Aspen

2017: The people encourage me to grow socially. The lessons encourage me to grow spiritually. The games encourage me to grow physically. • Talking with kids my age / around my age in middle school. – Sophie

2017: Hanging with my church family. Jumping in the Bible. Being open about Christanity. • Spreading the gospel. Daily time with God and the Word. – Kara

2017: I like hanging with friends and learning more about God. • To talk to my principal about the rule of God. 2019: Hanging out with friends and learning about God. • Being nice to people. – Sydney

2017: Hanging out with students and getting to know them better! And I love going on retreats; it’s a of fun and a great way to build relationships and community. – Aubree

2017: Hanging out with friends and the lessons. • Growing spiritually and sharing my faith with others. – Rebecca

2019: I really enjoy the communication and the enjoyment I get from others. I like the retreats we go on and the activities. The devotion / reading the bible time is very nice because it gives us another chance to talk with God. • Managing my time; controlling when I say yes and no. I commit to everything which makes it harder for me to talk to God and read his word. – Evan
