So pleased with this product!
This was a huge success at our church!
Instead of using this verbatim, I adapted for our group, like we do everything else- but that's what you do when you're a youth pastor/leader, right?

The script was solid enough that I could have each youth leader get up in front of our large group room and read a section.. All I had to change a few processes to fit our space, and add a few journaling prompts so leaders knew how to direct our students. (We had 40 of us in one room, instead of small rooms of 16 as recommended).

Most of the supplies were easy enough to find at the dollar store. So having 6 tables of 8, you could easily do this for around...$50-60, and I'm guessing you could do it cheaper depending on your budget. You will need thing like bread, salt, honey, candles, post-its, paper plates, towels, basins, jars, pitchers, and any decor/lighting you want.

Pro tip: if you dim the lights to set the atmosphere, make sure there is enough light to allow students to read/write in their journals.

Pro tip 2: play music in the back ground to add to the ambiance.

I got so many parents and youth tell me how much our students enjoyed this night. Good material, great message, and very fun to do!!

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
