Coffee House Disco

Christian Youth ministry is important for every church. Without it, many churches will not survive in the future. Here are two programs that will motivate your young people and in so doing they will probably have a lot of good fun. The aim at all times, of course, is to lead teenagers and twenties to a real commitment to Jesus Christ. The first program to look at is Christian Disco.

Pounding Beat

The Bee GeesThe pounding beat of the Bee Gees thunder throughout the lofty church hall. Bodies sway and bob to the rhythm. Then, in the doorway, a cautious thoughtful figure appears. The whites of his eyes pierce the half-light. A disturbed frown spreads across his brow as he tentatively pushes the door back and glances around. This was Bob Elliott, the Church Warden. He vaguely remembers that the Youth Group were going to "do something" but didn't quite recall just what. He had agreed at the Board of Management meeting that it was a good idea to encourage youth ministry, but he hadn't expected anything like this!

Light and Sound

In the haze, Bob recognizes someone he knows from the choir and weaves his way across the hall. "What's going on, John?" Bob asks awkwardly. "It's our first Christian Disco. Aren't the lights great?" John replies, still bobbing to the music which he is obviously enjoying. "Do the records have to be this loud?" Bob yells as the volume of sound suddenly builds up. Momentarily a barrage of blue and white lights attack him.
