Our Student Ministry is always looking for creative ways to energize the youth and keep the interest high in coming each week. Today, they kicked off the lip sync contest between the each of the Small Groups (Sunday School Groups). Every week, 4 groups perform a 1 minute segment from a song their group selected. The audience casts their votes by applause and the decibels are measured from an iPhone app the youth volunteer has (these phones can do everything!)
Today, Courtney's group (all 6th grade girls) went. They chose "Dancing with Myself" and they did a fantastic job! When the crowd "voted", they WON!!! Besides bragging rights, they also were awarded donuts and juice to enjoy during their lesson.
Lindsay's group will perform next week, followed by my Small Group that I teach in 2 weeks. The group that John teaches, performs in November, so it will be quite a while before we see his.
