ReFUEL June 14, 2009

I believe I should start at with apologies to Spencer & Michael who were juiced last night!   But hey you got a free T-Shirt & other free stuff.  haha

ReFUEL was a blast last night!  You guys came up with some creative stories once again.  In our series ‘HOOKED’, we’re in week 3 & talked about “Getting Rid of the Hook”.  We learned what we’re supposed to do when we get hooked.  Satan is like a fisherman.  He’ll keep trying different baits to hook you. 

Well, during the night in small group times you had a task.  Write a funny story of someone getting hooked on something.  It couldn’t be the normal drugs or alcohol.  So once again, here are your stories ReFUEL:

GROUP #1:  TAPOUT

ADDICTION:  Making Goats Faint

“Back in Africa, in a country called Mozambique, I made a goat faint.  Then I laughed, it filled me with such joy that I continued to do it.  It was awesome, the goats all of a sudden made better milk.  The goat said, “Milk me!”  But then the goat started to fly & became SUPER GOAT!  Eventually, the goat started to fly away.  And you couldn’t catch him anymore.  It flew too far & ended up in heaven.  Making goats faint brings them closer to God.”

GROUP #2: CHOCOLATE ROBO-COPS

ADDICTION: Sniffing People’s Socks

“So there’s this guy…& from he outside he looks like your normal squirrel, but do not be deceived.  He really is a 1 eyed, 1 horned, flying purple people eater.  With his humongous nose he loves to sniff socks.  He lives in the locker room & takes people’s socks.  From babies to old men, he smell them all.  And…it’s awkward.”

GROUP #3: CHIMICHANGAS

ADDICTION: Josh hooked on hot dogs & Scorpions

“One day an orphan named Josh O’Bannion owned a hot dog shack full of snakes & scorpions.  He was poisoned & the only thing he could eat was a hot dog.  He lived in the mountains like a caveman.  His best friend Keith Suggs was in town being held for ransom & the payment was 4 hot dogs, a box of scorpions & a chili cheese fry.  Josh lost 350lbs. & decided not to be hooked on hot dogs & scorpions.  5 days later he was called to be on the Pastor Phil show in regards to his addiction.”

GROUP #4: THE ALPACAS

ADDICTION: Jacob Preciado Hooked on Nail Polish

“Jacob Preciado got hooked on nail polish.  His favorite colors were hot pink & rainbow.  His favorite brand was PRO.  He is allergic to acitone & peanut butter.  One day it was sunny & Jacob brought in Phillip’s tighty whities to refuel.  He was wearing purple nail police & was showing it off to everyone at refuel prom.  Then he wore phillip’s, ate soup & became a ninja with tighty whities.  THE END.”

Well, there are your stories.  Don’t forget to get your refuel wrist bands!  Coming soon…T SHIRTS & MUGS!

Stories from ReFUEL May 31, 2009

Good morning everyone!  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Mine was such a long weekend, especially yesterday…but well worth it!

I wanted to do a quick post this morning for all of my kids in ReFUEL.  I wanted to post your creative stories up on the blog for all to read.  You guys rock!

They had to finish a short story & it goes like this:

Once upon a time there were 5 kids from ReFUEL who loves to break into people’s houses from the church & steal all of their light bulbs.  One day they broke into Pastor Phil’s house & little did they know…” 

Then they had to finish the story…

GROUP #1: The 10 Little Eskomoes

“…Pastor Phil has a shot gun which was God.  When they went to take the bulbs, they were gone because he didn’t like light.  So they went to the closet for shoes & found the guard dog which ended up eating them all.”

GROUP #2: KGC Eastas

“…That he was amish & uses candles.  He was eating Kentucky grilled chicken with deviled eggs & drinking rootbeer with Pastor Brendon.  They snuck into Phillips room & took his pink whitety tightys & his pokeman emerald.”

GROUP #3: Hungrians

“…That Pastor Phil had a gun.  A red pistol.  Also that Pasor Phil was secretly batman that had a dog named Jesus.  Pastor Phil says Jesus is watching you.  That’s when the kids noticed Pastor Phil had no light bulbs…he uses fire.  Wait Phillip Jr. is in the bathroom going #2.  The End.”

GROUP #4: Guitar 17

“…An elephant, a snake, godzilla, a bird, a cell phone & a dodge charger were playing in his pool eating snacks & wearing Phillip Jr.’s pjs.”

Great stories guys…sorry Phillip Jr. ended up getting roasted in 3 out of the 4 stories.  🙂 

ReFUEL was great last night….can’t wait for laser tag this Friday & ReFUEL on Sunday!

ReFUEL Poems from May 24th

Jesus Thumbs Up

So I hope everyone had a great memorial day. Mine was rather eventful from fixing my car which broke down over the weekend, moving into my new house & then off to a pool party. From which, I am very sore from!

Well, ReFUEL was amazing on Sunday. We had a blast with BBQing on the grill…we had 39 students. We missed some of our regulars that weren’t there!

During the service we did this group time, each group had a certain name but then had to write a short poem about how cool God is…

GROUP #1: The Detonators

“Our God is an awesome God!
He reigns from heaven above with wisdom & power.
God is so beautiful to me
He is the M&M of the Christian world.
One way Jesus, Your the onle One I could live for.
I’m desperate for You.”

GROUP #2: The Chocolate Rabbits

“God You are so cool
We come to worship You at ReFUEL.
It’s like eating ice cream in the pool,
Anyone who disagrees is a fool.”

GROUP #3: The Veterans

“God is really cool,
He won’t play you like a fool.
God is really great,
He does not have hate.
God is like a gravy biscuit,
Just like a tasty trisket.”

GROUP #4: The Gangsta Church

“God is smart, He saves your heart.
He helps us get through stuff, He’s more than enough.
He’s cool like Kayne West, you can just forget the rest.
I really love the big J.C.
Because He wants to save you & me.”

Just wanted to tell all you guys at ReFUEL, you guys rock!  Keep up being CREATIVE FOR CHRIST!

Hey guys I wanted to give a big shout out to all my kids & volunteers at ReFUEL!  Major props to all who made it out last night.  We had a blast.  I wanted to keep you all updated on stuff going around here.  I made the announcement last night but this for you who didn’t make it.

June 4th will be the launching of our very own refuel website.  So hit up refuel.tv.  Also we’re putting together a media team, be sure to join up next week so we can get this off the ground.  The media team will be shooting refuel church news, funny videos, podcast shows, sound, lighting, short films, & so much more.  Our very own Chris Seegars will be helping out in a major way!
