Come To The Table

by | All Youth, Programs

This is something that I did with my youth group in Friona, TX last summer along with Lessie Collins, we were summer youth interns. Every week (or every other week if schedules are stuffed to the brim) we would host a lunch. It can be anytime during the week or weekend. We usually tried to do them on Sunday after church. Lessie and I would cook for about 10-12 youth, make sure to mix it up and have people that don’t “hang out” often, and also have little cards with a verse centering around a specific theme; friendship, honesty, faith, etc. After lunch we would all gather and the youth would read their cards and tell us what it meant to them and then we would discuss the theme after everyone was finished. Later that same evening we would have all the youth at the church for dinner and a devotional. The youth that were at the Come To The Table earlier would then serve the youth that were not at the lunch. They could also be the ones giving the devotional for the dinner. It was a big success. It gave us a chance to connect with smaller groups at a time and break the ice between people who normaly wouldn’t associate with one another.
