Where will you find 20+ kids gathered on a Sunday afternoon for fun and fellowship? St. Andrew’s Youth Group! This year St. Andrew’s has two youth group gatherings one for middle school and one for high school and what a difference this change has made! We kicked off high school youth group on August 30 at Top Golf. We had over 20 high schoolers come to this event. This is the largest gathering of high schoolers in recent years. We then kicked off our middle school youth group on September 13. Again we had over 20 middle schoolers in attendance for games, chalk art and ice cream! The following week we gathered for a Chiefs Watch Party where again over 20 kids were present. Why is this important to know? The holy spirit is alive and well in our youth group, kids are coming not only for fun but to connect with others on a deeper level. Youth Group is a place where kids feel safe to share their highs and lows of their week. They know they will be heard, cared for and respected. Middle school and high school are a busy time for youth and families, trying to juggle activities and schoolwork. And even in the business, I would encourage youth to try out youth group. In a time where there is so much uncertainty in the world, one thing is always certain, God’s love for us, God’s desire to be in relationship with us, St. Andrew’s youth group is a great way for your children to grow in their relationship with Christ and thus bring hope to the world.
