It is hard to believe that it is already February, Lent is upon us and before we know it Easter will be here. I guess it is true that time flies when you are having fun. It has been about six months since I started this new adventure of working with children, youth and families and I have to say it continues to give back trifold. This opportunity has been a calling for a long time and comes at a time that feels very meant to be. Many thanks go out to all of the dedicated volunteers, supportive church members, friends and amazing staff that make this work a true joy to experience.
At six months, I thought it best to reflect on all the exciting things we have done and all those yet to come. For the children in Sunday School, we have added music, a new PreK-K curriculum and singing during the 4th Sunday services. For our older youth, Middle School continues to be inspired by the creative and exciting teachers that lead them. The launch of High School Sunday School was a great success with nine in attendance. With a new teacher and a new curriculum, we are thrilled to offer this opportunity for our High School youth. We also look forward to VBS this summer June 15-18 and summer camp opportunities for HUGs camp, Camp Henry, Camp Trinity and many more.
Our partnership with St. Patrick's continues for our Youth Program and provides so many great opportunities. It has been so fun to meet new friends and have amazing new experiences like the Middle and High EYC meetings, the Ski Trip in January, Pumpkin carving and s'mores, Urban Air outing, painting the new youth room, packing turkey boxes and many more. Working together we are creating lasting memories for our youth with more to come like Diocesan events in March (Happening for High School and Genesis for Middle School), a Middle School Mission Events Week (June 22-26) and a High School Mission Events Week (July 27-31) ending with a Missions Celebration at Whitewater Center on August 15.
Please continue to bring your children and youth to our many activities. Family support is so greatly valued and appreciated. We continue to work to bring many varied and exciting programs, activities and service opportunities to our children, youth and family ministry. It is my distinct pleasure and honor to serve in this role. If you are looking for opportunities to serve our children and youth, please contact me.
