One tradition that we have in our youth ministry is “Senior Graffiti Night”. This is an event we have for our high school seniors at the beginning of each school year. For this event we have a wall in our youth room that we paint over with gray paint. Then after a midweek youth group service we have “Senior Graffiti Night”. We set out a bunch of cans of spray paint and let all of our high school seniors paint whatever they want on the wall. (of course we give them the disclaimer that they can’t paint anything inappropriate) What they paint then stays on the wall till the next fall when we paint it over and let the next class of seniors paint it for their “Senior Graffiti Night”.
This event has become a fun tradition in our youth ministry that reminds the seniors that they are an important part of the youth group, and that they are leaving a legacy behind to the younger students. It also is something that our younger students look forward to.
