6. When you realise this is just a time wasting exercise till you get to “adult church”.

Okay so we are just here to waste 4 years of Sundays abi?

So that is all you people have to say?

9. When they try to stylishly use teenagers to teach some of the Sunday school classes.

Okay so we are now assistant teachers abi? Are we corpers?

10. When you are dancing to Kirk Franklin’s “stomp” again for the 700th time.

Not again abeg!

11. When one of your oversabi pastors says you have to delete all your “worldly” music.

So it’s only Chioma Jesus and Ron Kenoly we should be jamming abi?

12. When they allow teenagers lead adult church and someone suggests you preach.

You want the congregation to never come back abi?

13. When your parents try to add mouth in what you are wearing to church.

What do you people know about teenagers fashions please?

14. When your sme-sme friends are now forming Mummy and Daddy G-O in teens church.
