Aren’t they amazing! If you didn’t already know that, then many of you saw it with your own eyes this past weekend as around 60 children and youth led worship at all four of our worship services. From prayers and scripture readings to vocal and instrumental music – our kids did it all!
In a time when young people often grow up disconnected from older generations, I’m proud to be a part of a multi-generational community of faith that celebrates not only our young people’s gifts and talents, but also appreciates their vital contribution to our mission “to be and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.” Listening to our seniors talk about the impact of their involvement in so many different ministries of our church was also very encouraging.
I don’t often get a chance to thank our many children and youth ministry volunteers – but I know it’s your commitment to our church’s kids (from the infant nursery to our graduating seniors) that make weekends like the past one possible. Your love and faith are making difference! Thank you to our kids for a great weekend and thank you to all the people who walk with them weekly in faith and love!
