Youth Led Service & L2L Recognition
On Wednesday night, April 14, we hosted an evening of celebration and recognition for our young people.
I want to start out by thanking Lou Smith and Jeanie Sorrells for their leadership and preparation for this event. Jeanie led our group to Lads to Leaders in Nashville this year and Lou did a lot of work on the front end with our Puppeteers and for our Awards Ceremony. I also want to thank the Parents of each student who was able to participate in this program over the past 2 years in particular, for their investment, encouragement, and support.
Thank you to Lane Plant and Zach Bowlin for stepping up in our Youth Led Service to read through the parables of the Lost Sheep, Lost Coin, and Lost Son from Luke 15. Thank you also to Zander Peace and Andrew Curl, of Wartrace Church of Christ, for stepping up to share Devotional Thoughts on these passages. Also, thank you to Davidson Bennett for leading us in prayer. And last but certainly not least, thank you to Addison Whaley, Lorelei Smith, Slaiden Martin, and Treeleigh Dye for putting on a full puppet show for us revolving around the Parable of the Lost Coin. As my son said, “This is a good show!”
We ended the evening by giving out a host of awards from Lads to Leaders for 2020 and 2021. Recipients included: Millie Adams, Averlee Bell, Ryker Bell, Karson Brown, Allie Coggins, Kye Coggins, Sella Coggins, Savannah Davis, Treeleigh Dye, Caroline Garrell, Clark Henderson, Oliver Henderson, Sorrell Martin, Shane Mooningham, Samantha Oropeza, Abby Smith, Austin Smith, Caleb Smith, Lorelei Smith, Ruth Smith, Sophie Smith, Drew Smithson, Naiovy Villegas, Addison Whaley, and Jack Williams.
Special thank you to Todd Smith for helping co-host the evening, as the Deacon over the Lads to Leaders program, and for leading us in singing.
