Last week we all went up to the church one night to work and Jaxen had the best time playing the drums, the piano and singing in the microphone!
Please don’t judge me by his non-matching clothing. It was a last minute decision to go and all Jaxen was wearing at the time was a shirt, diaper and socks. I asked Nik to get him dressed and this is how he came out! And no shoes. So whatever. His outfit did not keep him from ‘singing’ his little heart out!
So while Jaxen played in a one-man-band, we worked. One of the last pieces to finish was what we call the “handprint wall”.
We attached lettering to the wall in the front of the room that says “See, I have engraved you in the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.” Isaiah 49:16.
Then on Wednesday night, Nik shared this scripture with the teens and told them how we are all engraved on the palm of God’s hand…never forgotten or forsaken. And each teen put their handprint on the wall. It was such a cool night!
Here are a few other aspects of the room:
A banner with the ministry logo
A wall covered with white board (which is now written all over)
Section 1 - youth announcements / Section 2 - teens personal events
Section 3 - random artwork / Section 4 - encouraging messages to each other
