Example's Christmas Party

The event began with a gift exchange.  The Most Creative Present was from Dana who gifted Nicole's life with a new goldfish.  

The Most Ewww Present went to Mereidth.  With her new supply of elastics, Meredith won't need any help with her braces for some time. 

The Most Awkward Present may have been the the booklet of creeped photos of Mr. Brandt with faces of family members replaced by a white circle and a "Your face here." message.  Mr. Brandt has contacted his legal team and is investigating if this privacy intrusion violates the Patriot Act. 

 Students acted out Christmas songs while the other groups tried to guess the title.  I believe the answer to the human contortionists pictured at the right was Joy to the World.

The evening also included the Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest.  It was a fiercely competitive battle, but at the end of the night, the people spoke and cheered, whistled and voted 

Anna as the Ugly Christmas Sweater Champion of 2012

The evening closed with the study of I Timothy 4:12.  Paul encourages Timothy to be strong and not let others look down on him because he is young.  The advice Paul gave Timothy is the same advice we can apply to our lives.  Our response to the mercy and grace freely given to us through Christ's death and resurrection, is to be examples to others in speech, life, love, faith and purity.  Students then wrote advice to other students and parents about how to avoid the temptations of alcohol and drug use.  Their encouraging words of advice are posted in the main hallway by the office.
