Alpha Youth: Week 1 & Minute-To-Win-It

This Friday we began the Alpha Youth series (whahoo!)

For week 1, we discussed various questions about life and heard different answers from people all around the world!

Afterwards, we competed in a series of minute-to-win-it games!

“Please send one representative from your team upfront!”

The games were led, for the first time, by our very own… MEG!

Berkeley outing

A couple of Fridays ago, we did something out of the ordinary and went to a beloved location in the Bay Area - UC Berkeley! We stood on the steps of Memorial Glade and had a good time of eating pizza together, hearing one of our staff share her testimony and hanging out. We loved being at Berkeley, and will be sure to visit again.

This Friday: SF Outing!

Come join us this Friday as we do something uber fun - hangout at San Francisco! Element Middle School is planning on having a fun Friday as we go play the 7Ds Experience and explore the city. It's guaranteed to be a good time, so join us if you can!

If you're interested, come this Friday 5/23 to 1255 Harbor Bay Parkway by 6pm. We'll be ending at 10pm.

Breaking the script: going outdoors!

Usually at Element, we have a pretty orderly schedule of dinner, short time of content and ending with a fun and awesome post-activity. Of course when you're with middle schoolers, you know you gotta shake things up sometimes. A couple of Fridays ago, we broke our usual script of how we do Element, and actually started with sports and hanging out outside. Afterwards then we went back indoors and heard a short message and had a nice chill time of boardgames and snacks. 

Check out these great pictures of us having fun and enjoying the sunset at Mecartney Park:
