This week at Fort Lauderdale Youth Group was a nice week for everyone. We started group at 7:30 pm with a member reading the rules for the night. Introductions today was your name, age, PGP (Prefer Gender Pronoun), and a nickname of what you want to be called, the question of the day was “Who is the person in the media you admire the most and why?”
Then we said the events that are coming up and I announced the Black and White Ballroom Halloween Extravaganza- the day of that event is Friday October24, 2014 from 7:00pm to 11:00pm at the Sunshine Cathedral Campus were we have Fort Lauderdale group at.
The Ice breaker today was Zip, Zap, and Zoom- if you never played it, it’s a very fun game. When the game starts, you say zip then the other person say zap and then that person points to the other person and says zoom, but when you playing you cannot hesitate and you cannot point to the person to the left of you and the right of you. If you mess up, you are out of the game until the game restarts. It was so much fun!
Then after that, we start group and the topic of this week was an open discussion. That means we could of talk about whatever the group wanted to talk about. We talked about How do we know we can trust the other partner in a relationship? Another was How do we know that we are compatible with the person we are dating? The answers to those questions were very good, some people said “You should be happy being single and just wait until the time is right.” “You should trust that person, but never let your guard down because then you may see the real side of that person.”
Our last question of the day was “In a household how can you talk to your parents about your life and you do, but find out that your parents talk about you behind your back?” This question affected a lot of people at the group, but at the same time we answered it like this. “Maybe the parents have to talk to the other family members just to so they can have a little understand of what you are going through.”
After that question was answered, it was time to leave so before we left one of the adults said that if you feel that your need’s was not met tonight you can talk to any of the adults or you can call us if you don’t wish to, and if you meet someone tonight and you like what they said go up and introduce yourself and get to know each other. After that, we ended group and said we hopefully see us next week.
