Change on the horizon

Interesting post on a "less is more" approach to junior high ministry. It got me thinking, what does my current junior high ministry look like?

-Mid-week gatherings of fellowship, worship, and teaching (90 minutes)
-Sunday morning gatherings of fellowship, worship, and teaching (60 minutes)
-Sunday morning small group discussions
-Annual Summer Camp
-Annual Winter Retreat/Overnighter
-Annual Fall Retreat/Road Trip
-Annual Spring Mission/Service Trip (beginning this year, with the rest of the church body)
-Monthly smaller events (game nights, worship nights, movie nights, etc.)

This brings up some questions for me that I've already been pondering: Does this lean more on the simple or the complex side of the spectrum? Is this too much or not enough?

The more I've thought and prayed about it, the more I've realized that something needs to change. We need to simplify.
