To say that I absolutely adored this event would be an understatement. This combined every Christian girls favorite things: fellowship, worship, and the beach! BEFORE: We promoted through social media & also had a RSVP list so we could have a good idea how many girls were going to show up. We told our girls the game plan (pick up & drop off times and locations), & asked that they choose modest bathing suits. Also, we hand-picked two girls who love worship, sing, and play guitar in our ministry to prepare a good amount of songs for this night; and we also asked another student to prepare a quick devotional.
DAY OF: We asked our students to meet at a specific location & we headed to the beach in our massive church vans. Once we got to the beach, we gave the girls free reign on the beach for 30-45 minutes & told them to meet back up at a specific location at a specific time. We then had a devotion, and worshipped for the remainder of the night. It was a great testament to those around us & to the girls to be bold in their faith (singing about the Lord)!
