THIS WEEK’S YOUTH GROUP TEACHING: THE BEAUTY OF MENTORSHIP

St. John’s Youth Groups help support our kids by giving them a solid foundation in the Bible and in community, and by pointing kids in the right direction by being present for them and being available to them. This leadership, or mentoring, helps the kids in several solid ways. Did you know that youth with […]

YOUTH GROUP RECAP, ERATOSTHENES’S DISCOVERY, AND MORE . . .

BINGO! was the game this week in both Youth Group meetings. But in the High School group it was ongoing references to prime numbers that dominated the game.

HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE ST. JOHN’S YOUTH GROUP

Tonight’s Middle School and High School Youth Group meetings dovetailed the opening collect of Psalm 23, offered by co-leaders Mr. and Mrs. Nichols, with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Pentecost Day sermon “Pentecost in a Pandemic”. Psalm 23’s message is that God is good. ALWAYS. PB Curry’s sermon theme was about making room for one another […]

UPDATE: YOUTH GROUPS GOING STRONG DESPITE LOCKDOWN CHALLENGES!

Our Youth Group meetings took a page from this week’s Memorial Day observance and asked YG members this question “Who would you honor on Memorial Day?” The answers varied: Grandmother, Grandfather, Dad, Mom, rapper — but the uniting factor was the impact each one had on individual YG members. One member learned from her Dad […]

WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT IN YOUTH GROUP: UPDATE!

OUR YOUTH, LEARNING FROM LIFE: YOUTH GROUP UPDATE

What do dogs and Covid-19 have in common? It turns out we can learn a lot from both of them.

THE STREETS ARE QUIET BUT YOUTH GROUP IS CHARGING AHEAD — THE UPDATE

At first glance online Youth Group meetings look just like other online meetings, but then the audio goes live to laughter, gentle hazing, prayers, and — what’s that in the background? — just one of the kids bouncing background slides from a nature shot to a goofy picture of a sibling, and an up close […]
