CHESTERTON – Road to Life Church’s student ministry, The Avenue, has just made The Ally their home.  Formerly known as Westchester Lanes, the old bowling ally is now a place where teens can gather and worship in a fun and interactive way that relates to them.  After the disappointment of a having to delay the initial opening from December, last night’s grand opening did not disappoint.   Jackie Beissel from Team WIMS covered the event.

The evening kicked off with the service for middle school students (5th-8th grade) from 6:00-7:00, then followed with high school students from 7:00-9:00 .  As parents dropped their children off, there were basketball games, music, socializing and fun activities outside.  Students were welcome to enjoy food from the “Jacked Up” menu, featuring a wide variety of PB&J and Grilled Cheese combinations, as well as a doughnut bar.

Inside, the RTLC Worship team began the services with a full band playing modern and energetic Christian hits.  The students were dancing, singing, and interacting with the worship team through all of the songs.  The sermon followed the worship service with a message that was interactive and relevant in the lives of teens.  The students were engaged throughout the sermon and the activities that followed.  Throughout the evening, the energy in the building never died down, it only increased.

It was clear that the opening of The Ally was a huge success.  It was a refreshing and fun scene for local teens that will continue to make a difference in our area.
