BUSINESS REVIEW Christian Youth Lock-In ii i!ili!i!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii(ii i i ; i i iiii ii: IY iii ,i:iiiiiiiii i iiiiiiii,i iii:!!)!!iiii  =; iiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiili!!i!iii:iiiii!iiiiiii!ii! ! ii ii!i ';ilililililiiiii!i:::ii!! ' ......... Norwalk neighbors, take a look at what Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church and Mt. Calvary Lutheran of Indianola Jr. High yout h groups accomplished. These sixth through eighth graders came together to enjoy an overnight (Lock-in) get together at Christ Our Savior's building in Norwalk. Friday evening was fun mak- ing personal pizzas while blindfolded, playing the bucket game and more. Two of the youth led an evening wrap up Bible study. An important part of growing Christian youth is to provide them opportunities to give of themselves. The next morning several adults joined forces with the youth to do some major cleaning, including emptying the nursery to prepare it for a face-lift. Even though these youth got very little sleep, they were eager to get to work. It is so good to see God at work in our youth. Photo submitted.
