Greetings to all!
FAMILY FUN NIGHTS will conclude next week Wednesday, August 24, albeit with a few modifications. Due to a variety of factors, we will no longer be having the parish potluck as originally scheduled.
However, we will still gather at 6:30pm in the church for Holy Eucharist and a Blessing of the Backpacks. Students & educators alike are encouraged to bring their backpacks and/or parcels used for their educational journey for a blessing in preparation for the 2022-2023 academic year.
LET’S CELEBRATE! has been postponed for the month of August. We are hoping to have this segment return in September. For those wishing to participate, please send in your moments of joy and celebration to Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, September 27.
FALL 2022 YOUTH MINISTRY SCHEDULE: Schedules for Youth Ministry programs, as well as 2022-2023 registration forms, for the Fall 2022 semester will be available in late August.
Sunday School (grades 4K-12) will be offered both in-person and virtually via Zoom beginning Sunday, September 11. Families are welcome to attend either depending on their given circumstances and/or comfort levels and do not need to commit specifically to one or the other.
We will continue with the multi-age approach that we've been using since March 2020, as it has shown to be an effective learning model for the students who have been involved. This means that we will offer one class in-person and one class virtually for the time being. If our needs change, we will revise accordingly.
Needed: 2-4 adults to teach (at least 2 per class); rotation schedule is an option
Times & Location: Sundays, 9:30-10:15am, Undercroft/Kemper Hall (downstairs) & Zoom
Youth Group (grades 5-12) will be offered in-person beginning Wednesday, September 14. We will retain the option to meet virtually if weather or other circumstances dictate otherwise. It is my hope that we will be able to return to offering regular service project opportunities for students, as well as activities/game nights with other local youth groups. Those opportunities will be announced soon.
Needed: 1-2 other adults to assist for both practical and Safeguarding purposes.
Times & Location: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm, Undercroft/Kemper Hall (downstairs); Zoom if needed for weather or extenuating circumstances
SAVE THE DATE: After a three year hiatus due to the pandemic, it’s thrilling to announce that the Diocesan Youth Fall Lock-In is set to return in 2022. This overnight retreat-type event is open to students who will be in grades 6-12 for the 2022-2023 academic year. This year’s Lock-In will be held November 18-20 at Waypost Camp (weekend before Thanksgiving). Space will be limited – stay tuned for more information.
