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.

LET’S CONNECT AND CHECK-IN WITH THE ST. JOHN’S YOUTH GROUP!

Connecting and checking-in are why St. John’s two Youth Groups meet weekly.

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 […]

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 Middle Schoolers enjoyed this hysterical video about dogs caught […]

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 […]
