Youth Lock-In: A Sleepless Success!
On February 25, 8 students gathered at 5 p.m. for a night at FPCC. This event began with a discussion about how we are representatives of Christ and how that love is illustrated by how well or how poorly we love others. Then, we prepared and served dinner at Our Neighbor’s Place with our friends from Erie City Mission. We continued the night’s festivities at Rolling Meadows and took part in a girls versus guys bowling tournament. (Hint: The guys won!) Next, we returned to the church to play a game of Catacombs in the dark and participated in a midnight Worship service in the Sanctuary. Followed by more games and snacks.
With only one hour of sleep, the teenagers awoke to prepare and serve breakfast to the guests of Our Neighbor’s Place. Chef Jackie Jones showed the students how to make and flip pancakes! The average nap after the Lock-In was 6 hours. But it was worth it! Thank you to the students who attended and to all the volunteers including—Ron and Lauren Fabich, Allison and JoAllie Paluchak, Nancy Irwin, Diane Sutton, Bill Tauber, Jackie Jones, Luba Kovalchuk, Monty Service, and Atchley Holmes—who took shifts throughout the night!
