The WELL Kick-Off

June 04, 2017

The WELL 2017 is off to a great start!

We started the afternoon by meeting our newest youth staff member- Robby Cella! Robby is our new Director of Youth Programs and we are so excited that he is here! He introduced himself a little bit and then we volunteered him to participate in our first game. He had to lay on the floor with a cup in his mouth while students had to try to break an egg and get the yolk inside the cup. It was a terrific way to welcome Robby to ryeX! :)  

Such a good sport! 

Such a good sport! 

We have also added a new game that we LOVE! It is a human form of Hungry, Hungry Hippos!

After our games, North Fulton Community Charities led us in a poverty simulation. We were each assigned a family role and an income and had to figure out how to pay the bills each month. The students learned so much! Ask them about their "family" and how they chose to handle paying bills and making decisions. 

After dinner we made sandwiches for MUST Ministries. They provide lunches for children during the summer. We then worshiped through song before Robby spoke. Robby taught about why we serve and the model that Jesus gives us. After Robby's teaching time, we broke into small groups to debrief our day and pray for one another as the week starts. 

I am so excited for this week and all the amazing work that God is going to do in and through our group. We covet your prayers as we begin this time together. 

I hope you can join us Wednesday night for dinner. We will share about our week and all that we learned. If you can join us and have not made a reservation yet, please email Mem to let her know how many are coming (

Looking forward to a great week!
