A HYPEr Finale!

Last Tuesday was our end of the summer party for HYPE and it was super fun! We had a record-high number of 3rd – 7th graders show up, which gave our party even more energy, life, and chaos! I wouldn’t have it any other way! Here are some photos from the last day (credit to Brenda Ramos for the sweet photos)

It was truly an amazing summer at HYPE, filled with many laughs and smiles! Here are some of my personal highlights:

  • Watching kids “fly” on the rope swing
  • Hearing the contagious sound of laughter every day
  • After-dinner and clean-up dance party!
  • Seeing the “lightbulb” turn on for the kids during Bible story time
  • Watching kids have FUN playing with old and new friends
  • Putting school supplies in backpacks for the Back to School Party
  • Playing 9 square in the air
  • Memorizing Philippians 3:12-14 in a rap form with motions

There are many more of course, but Cheers to God for his faithfulness this summer and giving so many of us the opportunity to invest into the lives of 3rd – 7th graders!
