Christmas Party Recap

A little over a week ago, we celebrated the end of another year at M.A.D. Skates & Rec Center and shouted THANK YOU to our Lord, King, and Savior Jesus Christ!

We had 40 people in attendance. Activities included skateboarding, dinner, games, art and a lot of thanks to all the folks who make Skate & Rec Night happen each week as well as those who hide in the shadows and help out BIG TIME at our larger events.

Here are a few of the photos taken at the Christmas party.

Setting up the tables for dinner.
Lasagna, Garlic Bread,  Salads and Bacon Wrapped Weenies. Yum!
Now time for a little fishing...
With donuts!  Not pictured here is the winner RV.  Retaining his 2 time champion status. I'm hoping to get a video edited, so I can post it here.  Stay tuned.
Merry Christmas Rec Kids!
An anonymous donor gifted two goals and 8 hockey sticks! Looks like we'll be playing hockey in January!  The goals will also be used for soccer and other creative games.
 The always popular OREO CHALLENGE!
The couple that plays together, stays together. 
God bless you two: Justine & RV.
Caleb J. - Much better at skating than getting that Oreo into his mouth, but always the good sport, he gave it a hearty try.
 Dakota and Caleb trying to follow in Nikki's footsteps...
She's in the zone...                                               Getting close! 
Nikki was actually the second fastest at this game.
Jaxson attempts to snatch his Oreo out of the air!

The fastest no handed facial Oreo eater... MACY!
With her good friend Ella cheering her on, or is she laughing? :)

 Ricki just kept trying. An "A" for the effort Ricki. 

Always smiling, but this wasn't her game.  

Sock Wars was!  However in the end, the four remaining girls were unable to defeat the Sock Wars champion, Seth!
We're looking forward to seeing you all back here January 6th to begin a new year of learning about God while having a ton of fun.

Bible Session 12-2-13 - Guest Speaker

This week we had a guest speaker, Karina Woodruff.  She does crisis intervention for Friends of Youth, and attends Eastside Foursquare Church in Bothell.

Topic: Christmas Story

Instead of handing out Bible to the youth, Karina had them "be the Bible."  Most students were given a piece of paper with their role and lines written on it.  As Karina read from the Bible, she would then ask certain roles to read their lines.  As you can imagine, there was much giggling especially when Seth was given the role of Mary.

After going through the most important Christmas story.  She spoke about how everyone was welcome at the manger - smelly shepherds, rich magi, angels, etc. She spoke on how Christ can relate to our human issues because he too had to have his diaper changed, get found when he ran off to the temple, and had to do what his mother told him to do. The kids giggled their way through acting out the nativity scene we know so well, and yet as Karina said, do we really. The manger was a pig trough. The stable was a cave. In the end, everyone was welcome at the manger, and Jesus is still welcoming everyone to come and know him.
