Last night I came home from church with my heart so full! Youth Sunday rehearsals are in full swing this week and I am so excited to see our students working so hard to be able to share their gifts with our church family. A few weeks ago, we began planning this worship service together and watching all of the pieces come together is so exciting.
As I am working on the bulletin for the service, I am overwhelmed at the amount of talent in our youth ministry. Not only do we have many sharing their gifts of music, but this year we have students sharing their gifts of dance. I am so proud of the students who will be standing up in front of the church with speaking parts for their first time. We have our God’s Hidden Hands students stepping out from behind the puppets to share sign language. Two of our seniors will be sharing a meditation. We have students who love our little ones who have planned a fun children’s message. Even our bulletin cover has been designed by a student. It is my hope that on Sunday morning as we see our youth lead in so many different ways, we can all be inspired to share our many different gifts with our church family.
I am also so thankful for all of the adult leaders and parents who volunteer their time and talents for this amazing group of students. From teaching and choreographing to preparing food and offering rides to events, there are so many people who make Derry Pres Youth Ministry what it is. Thank you.
