ACTS with AYM

Many of the MS staff were gone to Minnesota to help with our U of M team’s Winter Welcome events, and it was all during the POLAR VORTEX!

In the meantime, AYM staff joined us on Friday as we continued to learn through the book of Acts! Check it out!

Four-Square-Volley-Beach-Ball/Dodgeball

We’ve gotten real creative with our games here at Element MS.

As middle school is the midpoint from elementary to high school, why not bring an elementary school favorite and a high school sport together? We’ve been mixing it up. Check it out!

Sundays, Birthdays, and Farewells

The past two Sundays have been bittersweet as we said goodbye to Judy and Meg who will be moving and/or joining other ministries at our church. We will miss them very much!

We also celebrated January birthdays and played at the park!

This FRYday...

This Friday, we had a FRY day. Everything from our middle school room to our new element T-shirts just smelled… lovely.

But before that, we had a chance to review and thank God for 2018 and pray as we look forward to 2019 in an interactive way!

Community Service: City Team Oakland & Keen

After church, we had an opportunity to volunteer at an organization called Keen or City Team Oakland. Here’s what some of us learned from this experience!

“At City Team we helped pack lunches for people who are homeless. I learned that City Team does so much to help people who are in need.” - Nathan Lee

“On Sunday we went to Keen where we played sports with kids who have disabilities. It was fun. One thing I learned is that everyone is valuable regardless of having a disability or not.” - Timmy Tung
