This big group of Troy UMC middle school students and adults formed three teams to solve puzzles, crack codes, and follow clues with one simple goal – unravel the mystery scenario to escape the room in 60 minutes or less! While each student team make great strides toward breaking out of the rooms, the Museum Heist, Airport Hostage, and Kidnaping scenarios outmatched the collective detective work this time. Not bad at all, since Breakout STL has a 30% success rate among adult teams and avid puzzlers.
The afternoon was topped off with a stop at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in the Central West End. Whether the ice cream was packed into a large waffle cone or scooped onto a square dish, students and adults alike enjoyed splendid flavors of Salty Caramel, Brambleberry Crisp, Darkest Chocolate, Gooey Butter Cake, The Matterhorn, Ndali Estate Vanilla Bean, and more – it was certainly a sweet treat!
The next middle school student ministry special event is a service project at Ministries Unlimited on Saturday, 25 March. See RSVP flyer with details on the New Life Student Ministry page of the Troy UMC website.
