Starting this Sunday, our Youth Class, for students 6th grade and up, will start at 10:15am. Following the class, all students will attend our 11am service. This time change provides our team of Youth Leaders the opportunity to be more engaged with our students and to create a Youth Culture, not just a Youth Class. Plus, our students will be afforded the chance to take part in the 11am service in appropriate ways.
As the Youth Culture strengthens, we also intend to designate space for our teens to sit together during service in our sanctuary, or with members of our church family where they’d feel welcome. I urge you to go out of your way to make sure they feel valued and welcomed throughout our service. Also, make every effort to get to know them and express your appreciation for the ways in which they serve.
We plan to do more youth events this year. Having the chance to make lasting memories with our teens is so important and this window of time closes so quickly; so let us go after the moments in order to pour the love of Christ into these young men and women.
Finally, if you are interested in helping in any way, please let me know. I would welcome the chance in getting you plugged into this amazing Youth Team.
Grateful for you,
