events for Tri-Parish Youth
Dear Youth in Christ,
As I was driving today I saw 2 robins playing in the trees. It brought hope to my heart that the newness of Spring is not far off. I love the changing of the seasons. It brings a chance to begin anew and shake off the old dust of winter and begin to move in a new direction. You are invited to taste that newness through joining us at youth group as we pray, play, and rejoice in the God who made the rain, snow, sun , and all that brings us life!
