Lenten Youth Group Outreach

 
Six youth from HFEC and four adults gathered on Friday evening, March 22nd, for time focused on the importance of effective communication and how it impacts our daily lives. The group participated in a nonverbal game of “telephone,” to understand the importance of detail in all forms of communication.  As always, the end result is far away from the original piece of information!  After our Compline worship service, the group delivered a prepared meal for the Hamilton County Emergency Communications dispatch center located at the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office/Jail Complex in Noblesville.  After setting up the meal in the break room, the group was given a tour of the 911 dispatch center controlling the police, fire, and other emergency response operations in the county.  The group was able to hear one-sided live 911 calls and see the required calm and effective action to perform this important job 24 hours a day!  The group was also allowed to see the Emergency Operations Center which is activated during major events such as flooding, potential earthquakes, or other major disasters.  Many of our youth and adults asked excellent questions and were able to learn about this potential career path is this important part of our lives.

Child of God – Lifted in Prayer

 
Students from HFEC Sunday school classes in grades 2-12 gathered this past week to work together and construct a supportive model of the child of God. The “child of God” was a clear glass full of Christmas candy.  Other materials included three clear glasses labeled as faith, community, and love. There were also three butter knives each labeled as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The students were challenged to have all materials touching to elevate and support the child of God with the widest footprint possible which represented community outreach.  The group worked through several variations before suspending the child of God glass successfully by the knives on top of a marble table top. Following the activity, the students enjoyed a candy treat and discussed the connections from this challenge to their own lives.
