Yet another Andrew England epic creation for our sermon series intro video on “Culture in 3D” during our CBSM DNOW 2010.
If you’re researching how to do a great Back to School Bash, I’d love to give you our 2 cents on how God blessed us with a powerful one! We first tried doing Back to School Bash’s on Saturdays. We tried inflatables, we tried worship services, we tried no worship services, we tried a huge private pool, we tried to keep middle and high school together, and we tried separating them. But this year, everything just seemed to come together so well.
We planned our Back 2 School Bash on the 3rd Wednesday that the teens had been back in school. That allowed the word to get out and anticipation to build. We decided to try it on a Wednesday this year because we are a “Simple Church and Student Ministry” so we want all of our events to surround the most important thing we do…weekly worship services. We also did it on a Wednesday because we wanted to show all of our guests and visitors EXACTLY what we do every Wednesday in our worship service. We didn’t bring in a guest band.
