Today is one of my favorite days of the year. I start my brand new 7th grade Life Group (small group for jr. high), with 11 guys and one of my best friends as my co-leader. To say I’m excited would be a severe understatement.
I’ve learned a lot of things in the last 4 years of ministry, but there’s one thing that really caught my attention with my last group. Time flies by way too fast. It seemed like our 2 years together flew by as fast as a blink. I know this group will be the same, but I don’t want to miss out on recording the moments we have together.
This year I’m starting to photograph everything. I’ll take a group shot of our group tonight, and hopefully we can look back at the end of 2 years and see how everyone has grown. I’ll take individual shots of all the guys to put in my phone, not just for memories but also to remember names. I want to record everything we do together, so that when I look back at the time that has flown by, there is a tangible, visible memory attached to it all.
Question: What do you do to record memories as time passes by in your youth group?
