i know this post is coming a few weeks early, but I really really need your help. On New Year’s Eve we are holding our annual New Years Eve Teen Lock-In. We are expecting around 150 area 7th through 12th graders to come to this outreach. Throughout the night we will have bowling, cosmic bowling, games, karaoke, prizes, food, a guest speaker and much more. As always, our main purpose is to share the Gospel with these teens. This is a great opportunity to share Jesus and keep our teens in a safe environment on a night when there are many less than wholesome options for them to participate in.
In order to do this event though we depend on our KMM staff and volunteers from Lee County and surrounding communities. With so many kids we need adults to help us chaperone by interacting with the kids, watching the doors, making sure kids are following the rules, and also just building relationships to share Jesus with our students. Without volunteers this event and our other lock-ins really wouldn’t be possible.
Unfortunately our surplus of volunteers has dwindled over the past few years. Between helpers getting older, having other commitments, moving away, and various reasons our number of volunteers at each lock-in has decreased. God has been great in making sure that we have just enough help, but as I look to the future i am concerned about how many more lock-ins we can keep having without more help.
So how can you help??? First of all, pray that we will have more than enough volunteers for this outreach and many more to come. Next, consider volunteering yourself. I know that a lot of people can’t stay all night long, but even if you could stay for the first half of the night, or come in for the last half of the night, that would be a great help and blessing to us. If you feel led to volunteer, please contact me asap. You can reach me via email, Facebook, or give me a ring at the Lee County Recreational Center.
I hope to hear from you soon!!!
