This will be short sweet and to the point! If ever you guys need something to do on a random day, or the first week of every month (like I do) I recommend CRASH nights! Which stand for Come Relax At Someone's House! The whole premise of that is to take a night off of normal youth group just to be together. I do this the first week of every month, I ask someone in the church if they are willing to open their home to us and provide food, then we come and we do the rest! It is a great way to build community amongst the students there, but also a good tool for evangelism(tell your students to invite someone)! This tool is especially great for those looking for a way to get the congregation involved in the Youth Ministry!
I try to get mostly parents, but I also have reached out to other members of the congregation here at Third CRC. If a parent has a student in the High School Ministry, I usually would ask them to host High School, and Junior High, Junior High!
Hope that helps anyone looking for another resource!
