Youth Night on the Streets this Friday!
I wanted to invite you guys from "Distinct" out this Friday Night on the streets for Flippin' Friday! It's a unique downtown experience where we serve food, meet "colorful" people and get to share the love of Jesus in a practical way.
So here's the plan. Let's meet at Freedom Gate Apartments (the old Freedom House building... NOT the mall) at 8:45 in the common meeting area. That's through the fence on the non-parking side of the building. We'll meet as a youth ministry for 15 minutes or so and I'll go over what's going to happen that night and then we'll head upstairs to the apartment of our missionaries Steve Frank and Keith Cripps. We spend the next hour praying and hearing God for what he wants for the night.
Then at 10pm... we hit the streets. Our youth leaders will be there to make sure it's a safe environment... but I will warn you... crazy things CAN happen. It would be great if you plan to be there until midnight (please plan on your parents picking you up as we stay much later so we won't be driving people around) but anytime is also fine. If your parents are on the street with us... you are OF COURSE welcome to stay later.
I will say one thing. While this IS fun... we're there to serve and there are times where the streets can be crazy. This is NOT a place where you will be free to roam around, goof around or not participate. If that is your plan, it's truly better not to come as we'll just send you home anyway. We are there to serve and it's a powerful thing. Guys... I'm looking forward to seeing how God uses us all this week!
