As youth, youth leaders and supporters, we promise to create a place together where all youth are truly welcome. We promise to make this a sacred place rooted in trust. We know that we will make mistakes, but we will always try to create a place where laughter can be heard and hope can be restored. We will work at creating a safe place where wonder is palpable, where curiosity is peaked and where no one really has the “right” answer.
In this sacred space, we will know each other by name and be just as God created us without judgment or fear. It might not always be a perfect place – but we will work together to imagine a place where everything connects when we are being silly and playful or serious and prayerful or struggling for justice and peace. We will trust each other to try to live as Jesus teaches us, loving each other with each step along the way.
Please mark all of these dates on your family calendar. Some of the events may change to reflect the interests of our youth. For everything we do, if cost makes it difficult to attend, please let the YM advisor know. There is money available for those who need it.
SEPTEMBER 15 Planning meeting in the new Teen Room (downstairs in the undercroft) at 1:30. Then on to Portland Players to see Jesus Christ Superstar from 2:30 to about 4:15. Student rate is $8. Let Deb know right away if you are interested. Friends are welcome!
The rest of the 2013-2014 YM schedule will be coming soon!
