Well this weekend was a very long and tiring weekend, but it was good.
On Friday morning, we ( church staff - 7 of us ) headed to Montgomery, Alabama. Due to numerous stops, a long lunch and B'ham traffic, we did not get there till a little after 7 ( 6 their time ). We quickly ate and then went to the first general session ( 2 hours ). The worship was blah to me but his talk was good. We then went to the Wingate to check-in and then we went to Up-The-Creek to unwind and catch our breath.
On Saturday, we had 4 sessions ( I went to 3 ). During the 4th session, I had the op to talk to the former YM from Frazier ( left last week ). So, I took that opportunity to listen to him instead of the fourth session ... These were the sessions I attended:
- youth ministry ( 7 - 12 grade )
- transitional ministry ( 5 - 6 grade )
- youth worship arts ( it really was glorified youth choir )
We then went out to eat at Jim & Nick's ( YES ! ) and then back to the church for their contemporary worship experience. After the service we went to Wing's before retiring for the night.
On Sunday, we left a 7 am. We made much better time coming home. We got back a little after 6 pm ( we lost an hour ) and I hung around with the students - adults had everything under control. Then i went home and vegged in front of the tv.
