Christian teen club opens next week

By CHRIS AGEE

A new, faith-based youth hangout will soon be open at 212 S.E. 1st Avenue.

Venue 2:17, originally established in Weatherford more than four years ago, is making the move after owner Brenda Stewart felt a call to reach local teens.

The 2,200 square-foot building can accommodate twice the number of attendees as her previous location, which she said was visited by more than 4,000 young people.

“They were there on Friday and Saturday [and] heard the Word,” she said, “and were not out doing other things.”

The new location will have its grand opening Feb. 22, Stewart said, noting she has already discussed the project with the local Ministerial Alliance.

“They were all in agreement with the need for an outreach ministry geared toward teens,” she said.

While not connected to any church, she hopes local youth leaders will support the effort to reach teens with a Biblical message.

Along with live music from Christian artists of various genres – many who share their own personal testimony – the venue will feature plenty of activities for teens.

Admission is free and youth will have access to video games, air hockey, pool tables and foosball in a supervised environment.

Concessions will be available on site and the venue will be open every Friday and Saturday, 7-10 p.m.

    In the 40-day season of self-denial called Lent, some Christians give up daily comforts such as chocolate, soda or Facebook. Attorney Kent McKeever felt called to try something a little more uncomfortable.

     

    McKeever, a youth minister and Mission Waco legal advocate, is dressing each day head to toe in orange jailhouse scrubs in solidarity with the imprisoned and returning ex-cons shunned by society.
