News from our Youth and Family Ministry
As our time goes on with our physical separation, we continue to reach out to our children and teens.
YOU (our high school teens) met this past Sunday via Zoom with our Portland group first and then with the greater NW Region teens. The lesson was on Divine Order. One of our teens was reminded that Divine Order is there for all of us and everything is as it should be. Often guidance can be given for things in the future and you might not even know it is coming.
Uniteens (our middle school teens) families received an email on Friday checking in with the teens to set up a group meeting via Skype. If this doesn’t work they will try another online process.
For our elementary level children and our preschoolers, I am asking that parents connect with me via email. We will create a Youth Ministry Constant Contact list of all families that would like updates, mini spiritual lessons to do at home and general information as we go forward in our changing world. If you have children preschool through 5th grade, please let me hear from you and share ideas and ways to help us stay connected.
Did you try writing happy words or affirmations on the sidewalk? Let me know if you did? This week why don’t we join in on an activity that is being done all around our country. Put a teddy bear in your window or on your front porch and when you take a walk, see how many teddy bears you can find. Again, this activity has no age limits, so let’s do something that is just for fun. Maybe you can talk a neighbor into doing this with you.
Please include in your email to me:
Names of families – Mother and/or Father first names
Email addresses that you would like to receive info at
Names of children and ages
If you would like to ask questions or would like a phone call, please let me know.
