Okay, info on our new calling! I am really excited but I would love some ideas and suggestions!
The singles ward in our stake was dissolved on Sunday. The Stake Pres. called Brad and I to be the new Stake Young Single Adult Advisers. So, we will be doing FHE (Family Home Evening) every Monday evening ~ last night was our first, I really should have taken pictures. (I will in the near future) We had a short lesson and then played Jeopardy and had refreshments! One of the girls made the game, it was SO much fun!!!
Anyway, we will be doing FHE, a regional dance at our building every 4th Friday, break the fast every Fast Sunday (1st Sunday of the month), activities, firesides, temple, DI assignments, etc. We are also in charge of a regional beach party in the summer. Sounds like a lot of work, but TONS of fun! I am very excited!!!
We were given a list of YSA's in our stake and there are 606 on the list!!!! BUT, there were only 35 that had records in the Singles Ward! I am sure some of them have moved, are on missions, and are less active. I think our BIGGEST job is going to be getting them out! You would think this age group would want to play!!! I don't know what the problem is on attendance!!!
I am posting to share my excitement but I am also posting to ASK FOR ANY IDEAS ON FUN THINGS YOU HAVE DONE.... whether it is something you did when you were a YSA or some fun activity you did as a mutual activity or ward activity... I can copy really well, LOL... Any ideas on getting them out to participate... HELP!
(And, yes, I will still be teaching Institute. I have more come to Institute then come to FHE! I don't get it!)
