May 3, 2013 - From staff reportsRiverton's First Assembly of God hosted its second Friends Night youth outreach event in March at the church, 701 E. Adams Ave.
Organizers said more than 70 teens participated in the evening, during which they had the chance to speak via Skype with youth leader Michael Brumback's brother-in-law, Pixar artist Michael Comet, who has worked on animated films like "Veggie Tales," "Ant Bully," "Ice Age 2," "Up" and "Brave." Comet spoke with the group about his career in animation and his religious life, and students received gifts from the Pixar store. They also recorded their own Harlem Shake video.
Regular Friends Nights will be held on the first Tuesday of every other month, and students are encouraged to invite their friends to the gathering. Events will last from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and anyone who brings a new person to the group gets a free latte. The next Friends Night is scheduled for May 7, and Brumback said local race cars may be part of the event.
Friends Night is part of the church's SPARK Youth Group for children ages 12 to 17. The group meets 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays, with a game room open 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
