Easter Weekend!!

Being from Ohio and the six hour drive I have to go home, I stay here for Easter every year. In West Lafayette I have found First United Methodist Church. Her e I teach the 7th and 8th grade confirmation class with Pastor Glen. Each year I have been here it has become a tradition to have a lock in on Good Friday. This year was no different as we in fact had the lock in as well as, the Junior High were heavily involved with the Good Friday service as they preformed a skit this year. After the service the youth gather for a fun filled night of games, food and other discussions. We stayed up until 3 am and then woke up to make French Toast in the morning at around 7:30! It was great fun!
I was very impressed with the youth who not only stayed up until 3 am on Saturday morning but then they proceeded to turn around and helped to put on an Easter Sunrise Service. Many of the youth showed up at the church at 6:45am to perform another skit, from there at around 8:15 they went down to the activity center to put on an Easter Pancake breakfast. Overall, it was a very big weekend for them, the church and me!
Sunday afternoon was great. Caroline and I invited over a bunch of our friends who also live out of state, or have a long drive home and were unable to make it home for Easter Weekend. We prepared an Easter Dinner and the menu consisted of:
Mashed Potatoes
Fruit Salad
Green Beans
Banana Nut Bread
Chocolate Covered Strawberries

It was a great time and the food was awesome!
