Last night, we gathered together 47 of our amazing students and Youth Group leaders and drove them all out to Tanger so they could participate in our kick off event, The Hunt.

Basically, they got to hide and roam around Tanger Mall till they were found by our church and community friends.  They absolutely loved it.

And for the record, they were all amazing.

It was so fun to see some of our Hangtime friends there as well!  Shameless reminder… Our community after-school program Hangtime starts up this coming week and I could not be happier.  It’s never too late to register your K-6th grader for our Wednesday program and you can do that at: www.eastportbiblechurch.com.

Back to the Hunt.  If you were walking by the Pottery Barn outlet last night and saw this, well, that was just part of our game.

Including this homeless looking kid, I like to call my own.

Chatting with a few parents who had dropped off their kids for our event, I was reminded just how happy we are to get to do what we do.

Fifteen years of working with teens and I’m realizing that now more than ever is the time we are needed.  These kids are amazing.  But they struggle and it’s our goal to reach out to them and to share the love of Jesus.  On that note, Youth Group which is for 7th-12th Graders starts next Thursday Night at Eastport Bible Church from 7-9pm.  We would also love to see your teens there as well!

And at the end of the night, I have to say there were quite a few very successful Hunters. These cuties included.

Gathering everyone together and causing a mini spectacle we tallied up the score to see who had found the most teens throughout the night.

And the winner and take home of our legitimately awesome trophy?

The incredible Dylan.  We were super proud of him for having found something like 42 of the 47 students.  His determination and tenacity (paired with a little help from his amazing mom) ended in sheer victory.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for The Hunt!  It was an incredibly fun event and we we are so happy that you were there.
