Last night we had the first "meeting" of the newly formed College/Young Adults ministry at PCOL (our church). This is something we had wanted to do in CA after they hired a full-time youth pastor, but never had the chance to b/c of 1) baby and 2) moving.
So, one of our goals as we took over the "youth" ministry at PCOL was to start some sort of college ministry. We're not near a college, so it wouldn't really be a "reach out" type of thing. More of a way to support students who were in the HS group and have since gone on to college. I think it's kinda ironic that the first thing we did officially "on our own" was start a new ministry, not have a meeting for any of the existing ones. :-) Like we don't have enough to do...
The highlights were a rousing game of Taboo (especially entertaining was the non-native English speaker trying to get people to guess "Glasnost". I believe he passed on that one.) and a sampling of my Christmas gift, the 2005 Jones Soda Holiday Pack (I got the "Regional" one).
We decided the flavors were (from worst to best):
- Turkey and Gravy
- Broccoli Cassarole
- Smoked Samon Paté
- Corn on the Cob
- Pecan Pie
Seriously, the first two were nasty.
A good time was had by all, fellowship was fellowed, and shots were downed, just not the kind you usually expect with college kids. These were far worse.
