Jeff’s Blog: We Have A Winner!

It’s the end of Superbowl weekend and we have a winner! Along with the N.Y. Giants winning the Superbowl (congrats!) our super youth group at Alive was the winning team at Winter Youth Camp at Prescott Pines in Prescott. Throughout the weekend camp the different youth groups compete in games and team spirit and Alive Youth won overall – way to go gang!!! (25 of our youth attended Winter Camp along with 5 Youth Leaders) A special congrats to Chad Lacy who set an all time record for the Prescott Pines campground in Snooter Shooter (you stick a Skittle in your nose and blow it out for distance) with over 40 feet! We are so proud of you Chad. It is so great to know that our youth worship leader has other talents besides being a great musician! (I’m trying to figure out how to incorporate having Chad demonstrate for a weekend talk) Parents, if you didn’t know the Alive Youth group meets on Wednesday evenings at 7pm and Sunday mornings during the 11am service.

This weekend we wrapped up the weekend talk series “Unlock”, with “Unlock Freedom”. (Investing in others for the sake of something bigger – freedom – eternity) If you didn’t have a chance to catch the weekend talk you can watch the archived version at

I’ve already begun preparing for next weekend and the beginning of our new weekend talk series, “Pure Sex”. We are going to spend a few weeks looking at what the Bible has to say about sex. A lot of people tend to think that the Bible is silent about sex or simply just says “no” to sex. Nothing could be further from the truth. This will be a very powerful and important series. Make plans on attending this coming weekend an inviting your friends.

Have a great week – I think I will go practice my skills in Snooter Shooter and put out a challenge to Chad and the rest of our awesome youth group at Alive – the pastors vs youth!

P.S. My favorite commercial during the Superbowl was the Hyundai one with the Rocky music. What was yours?
