Today team 611 led both services at Delaware GBC and they went very well! Trevor S. shared his sermon first service and Matthew M. shared his during the second. We got some awesome opportunity to encourage the entire congregation here at Delaware. We loaded up the bus quickly and drove the few miles back to GBC Polaris to help them with a community outreach program that they were doing this afternoon. The team split up to help out with some small projects to keep things running smoothly. We got back together and put on a short program geared to mostly younger kids and had a great time doing it as well!

We packed everything back up on the bus quickly after our program and headed back to Delaware GBC with a short stop at McDonalds for dinner. Delaware’s youth group started at 5:30 and we mingled and did a few of our dances to build some great energy with they youth here. We played some games and heard a few testimonies before Alex and Pastor Dave shared. We spent some time in worship through music together than took down chairs in the youth room and in the main auditorium as well. Many students took opportunities to mingle and build friendships during this time as well.

When most of the youth had left we transitioned into a time of debriefing about the day and a teaching time about forgiveness.  It was awesome to see how the students were convicted and how they responded as well. We as leaders are proud of all of them for so many reasons! We had a bit more sharing time than goofed off together for a while before getting ready for bed.

We are still not totally sure what we will be doing tomorrow but please pray that the Lord uses us in whatever that ends up being. Please also begin to pray for Momentum youth conference starting on Tuesday. It will be an incredible week for everyone who is able to make it. Pray not only for our students on OB but also for those coming from churches from all around the country. Pray that the Lord uses the worship leaders, the speakers and anyone else that is involved to speak truth and Love into the hearts and lives of the students. Thanks!
