This is going to be quite the weekend in Youth Ministry. We have the Confirmation Retreat Friday-Saturday and then Youth and Senior Sunday on … Sunday! It will be a glorious walk with youth as they learn more about their faith at the retreat and then share their faith and gifts with the parish on Sunday. And it’s always a bittersweet Sunday for me as we officially say goodbye to our graduating seniors – though they are always a part of our family here at St. Paul’s. I hope you all can come for the youth “takeover” of the 9:00 service Sunday.
Here is the upcoming youth news:
• Christian Formation:
5/19: We’re done for the semester, but we’ll be back in September.
5/19: Garden, Games, and God! We’ll check on the garden and weed if needed, play games and end with Compline. Come relax and have fun together and spend some time in prayer.
• Youth Sunday 5/19: There are a few more spots – especially choir members, so please sign up to help: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d49afaa2fa7fb6-youth12. Everyone should be at church by 8:00 for training and getting ready. Meet in the youth wing.
• Youth Sunday Coffee Hour 5/19: Again, we’ll need help to make this happen. Sign up at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d49afaa2fa7fb6-youth13.
• Episcopal Farmworkers Trip June 17: We are going down for a day to learn about the EFwM and see what they do and where they are. We will also spend an evening with farmworkers at a local camp, including cooking dinner for them and sharing a meal. Soccer or volleyball is sure to follow. All ages are welcome, including parents. We will leave St. Paul’s at 11 am and return around 10 pm. The cost is $25.00. You need to bring additional money for a fast food lunch stop. The registration form and non-refundable payment is due by June 9th. The form can be found on the Youth page of the St. Paul’s website by Friday. If you have any questions, contact Leah.
I look forward to seeing you Sunday.
