The Youth’s Ministry Kick-Off Fiesta was an amazing success! More than 120 people came to the kick-off, and more than 65 youth stayed for the first meeting of Mosaic (high school youth group) and Journey (middle school youth group) that evening. The groups have started the first series on “Stories—The Parables.” Over the next five weeks, the youth groups will dive into the power of stories in the Bible, the reason Jesus used stories as teaching tools, and how we begin to see our own stories intertwining with God’s stories. Youth are welcome every Sunday at 7:00pm: middle schoolers in Room 7 for Journey and high schoolers in the Youth Room for Mosaic.
The next combined youth event will be on Sunday, September 22, 6:30–8:30pm. It will be a progressive dinner: an adventure through a meal, with different stops for different courses that will ultimately finish back at LAUMC. This will be for both youth groups together!
In addition to the general Compassion Week activities taking place September 30 – October 6, there will be special youth projects on Saturday evening, October 5, and Sunday morning, October 6. Full details will follow. Please reach out to Sam Pompei with any questions or to join the Youth’s Ministry email list. Contact Nadine Damonte with questions about the youth Compassion Week projects.
