Worship. Serve. Grow.

Youth News (Feb 9, 2020)

This week we had a well deserved game night. I hope all who were able to join us had a great time!  Next week, the pre-eyc kids will be joining our discussion, and we talk about the reality of the life and ministry of Jesus. It’s going to be a good one! 


  1.  St. Paul’s will recognize the citizenship and volunteer efforts of all Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and leaders at the 9:00 a.m. service on February 9th.  On Scout Sunday, Scouts and leaders will participate in a variety of roles such as greeters, ushers, and lectors. All Scouts and adult leaders are asked to wear their uniforms. Sign up at  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040F49AFA92C7-scout or contact Stephany Enders at stephany.enders@gmail.com . Additionally, we have been asked to assist the Fellowship Events Team with Coffee Hour. Food donation slots have been added, and the FTE team has asked for donations of small (dollar store) toys and self-care/travel-size hygiene items that they are collecting  for care packages for the USO.

    1. The only reason that the previous semester went so well was because of the support from parents and volunteers. We’re going to need that same enthusiasm and support again here in the second semester. Please take some time and look over your calendar to see where you could potentially help. Thank you.

  • Happening and Genesis: March 27th  – 29th  
    • Happening is a renewal weekend for high school youth. The event allows young people to encounter Christ in an intentional Christian community. The event is led by youth with clergy and lay adult support. Highlights of the weekend include talks, songs, worship and small groups. Happening is a youth event under the authority of the diocesan bishop.
    • Genesis is a middle school event during which young people grades 6-8 are encouraged to learn more and grow deeper in their faith through talks and the leadership of high school age youth. The theme for 2020 is relationships with God and relationships with ourselves. Join us for a youth lead weekend with talks, music, small groups, friends and fun.

Thank you all so much. 

God Bless,
