Have your youth group throw a special party for all your graduating seniors. Have kids each write encouraging notes on super-sized cards for each senior. As a part of your evening, take the seniors aside one at a time and videotape them offering words of encouragement to future youth group members. Keep these recordings on file and play them for new youth group members when they join. *** My twist: Go to their parents and ask for early school photos and video, etc and put them on display on bristol board or as a slide presentation. Good for a laugh!
