Youth events for April
Dear Youth in Christ,
The raindrops are falling as I’m writing this letter! Each droplet reminds me of the invitation toward growth. The Spring flowers begin to speak words of beauty and greatness as they stretch toward the light of newness. It is here in this invitation of greatness we invite you to stretch your roots and joins us in this months youth activities of praise, prayer, worship, retreat, study, fun and fellowship!
We will begin the most sacred week of the year by doing nothing. You are invited to slow down and reflect on the beauty of this week. I challenge you to take a few minutes each day to sit in the quiet of the story of your faith. You may be surprised at just how blessed this week can be as you prepare for the Tridium. May Easter Sunday bring you many blessings as you celebrate with family and friends. “Rejoice, the Lord has risen”!
