Youth Ministry Newsletter – Feb 2014

MLK Overnight 2014: Peace Begins with U(U)!
MLK Overnight 2014: Peace Begins with U(U)!

Hey Youth and Parents!

In January, Youth Ministry was awesome!  High school youth and I attended the annual MLK Overnight for social justice.  This year the theme was Peace Begins with U(U)! Our own Jamil Scott helped the youth to practice centering and finding inner peace in order to then change the world.

The youth group recognized the 30 Days of Love campaign and  made Valentine’s Day cards for immigrants in detention centers to show love and solidarity.

Coming of Age talked about the diversity of God beliefs and Our Whole Lives explored healthy expressions of sexuality.
Coming of Age: GOD Pantings
Coming of Age: God Paintings
