Called “Full Turn,” it grew from 15 students to 500 in a year, with attendance topping 1,000 students.
Full Turn would become the basis for how their modern church is presented.
Despite this, the youth ministry was disbanded in 2006 when the core leadership moved on to other ministries and Full Turn transformed from a youth group to a church.
However, after seven years, Full Turn youth group will be reuniting to celebrate all that was accomplished and the people who were reached during its history. The reunion will be May 18 at 7 p.m. at the church, located at 1521 Hurt Road in Marietta.
“This will be the 15-year anniversary of Full Turn, which has become a church,” said Alan Mushegan, pastor of East West Church. “I hope to see 500 students in attendance.”
On the night of the reunion, there will be many exciting performances.
“The original Full Turn band will be getting back together and playing, and there will be some special performances from the Full Turn choir and the Full Turn step team,” Mushegan said. “Then there will be some praise and worship, and I will be speaking.
“This is a reunion specifically for students who attended Full Turn from 1998 to 2006. However, anyone is welcome to come.
“God did some great things at Full Turn in the past,” Mushegan said. “This will be a great time to reconnect.”
