Brother's/Sister's Night

We had a blast with you guys this past Friday during our Brother's/Sister's Night!

The guys drove out to Anthony Chabot Regional Park, where they had small group time, learned how to build a fire, and roasted sausages. The 6th grade boys were challenged with Ecclesiastes 4:12 to be brothers to one another and stand firm in their faith together, the 7th grade boys focused on Matthew 5:16 in letting their good works shine before others, and the 8th grade boys were challenged with 2 Corinthians 5:17 to be new creations.

The girls stayed at HB and learned about the importance of having a growth mindset as opposed to a fixed mindset when thinking about their skills, intelligence, and character. Afterwards, they had a Dessert Iron Chef competition, where each team of girls competed to make the most awesome sushi platter out of candy and rice krispie treats!

 The guys demonstrated their dominance over fire and proceeded to roast meat over it in the typical male fashion.

 The girls gathered to watch a TED talk about having a growth mindset.  They learned that not only is this mindset important in daily life, but it's also essential for persevering through discouragements and setbacks they face in their spiritual life too.   Some of the staff shared about their own struggles to grow in the areas of drawing, learning Photoshop, playing the violin, and cultivating a prayer life.

  Afterwards, the girls faced their greatest opponent yet: a cranky grandma with a fixed mindset!  Each grade of girls had to try to convince Grandma why it wasn't too late to start learning and growing, even in her old age!
