There was a great turnout and excitement filled the air as the Stryker community awaited the talents of Christian comedian and magician Terry Michael Owens on Saturday night at The Loft.
The Loft is a Youth for Christ based youth group for teens in Stryker and the surrounding communities. The Loft’s steering committee likes to give back to the community by hosting public events as a thank you for their support of the youth ministry.
The steering committee provided free popcorn and drinks, and offered candy bars, for a small donation, to profit the running of the youth group. The adults worked hard, behind the scenes, to provide a fun, clean, and joyful night.
Saturday night’s entertainment was spectacular and a huge success. Everyone became involved in the show, young and old alike, and had a wonderful time watching, and participating in, the antics of the star.
Owens, also a pastor of his own church in Fort Wayne, gave an altar call after the show, and over 30 boys and girls came to the front and gave their lives to Christ.
This Friday is Guys Night Out for boys and men, 7th grade to age 99, and they will be bussed to The Iron Shop in Ridgeville Corners for a night of food, fun, and guy stuff. Meet at The Loft by 7 pm. as transportation will depart at 7:15 pm.
For more information about this or upcoming events, please call 419-346-2348.
