Blessings to you all,
As we look toward the upcoming weekend with its peak weather conditions leading to the PEAK experience of our Sunday worship together, I would like to share with you that this coming Sunday will be quite different. The scriptures are: Luke 2:41-52 and Matthew 28:19-20. During the usual “sermon” time Abigail will lead us in a time together focusing on the 3 questions listed below.
Abigail, being new to our church, would value and appreciate your reflections of what has been done and your hopes and visions for the future as they pertain to children and youth ministries. The following questions will help direct our time together:
1. What do we do or what have we done well in our children’s and youth ministry in our church?
2. Pretend we are five years into the future and everything you hope for our children’s and youth ministry has come to pass. What one or two words describe this program.
3. What kinds of children’s/youth activities and other practical steps will get us toward that vision?
We will be asked to break up into small “sharing” groups and reflect together on the questions. This time is NOT limited to parents and youth but to ALL in the church as this a vital part of our life together – it really is an all-church ministry. The hope is that with this information from you, Abigail will be able to fashion a direction as we grow into the future.
Chessy Kelley will be offering Yoga for our children in the Fellowship Hall during this time.
I so look forward to seeing you on Sunday and hearing about your experiences and hopes.
Seeking the PEAK with you
