(Sixth – twelfth graders)
Beyond: Service in the Community
I welcome all youth at Going Rogue and also understand that it just doesn’t work for some.
Youth who are not participating in Going ROGUE activities are an important part of the St. Paul’s community, which I don’t think the church in general does enough to recognize and embrace. Adults who don’t do adult formation programs are not considered uninvolved, so why should that be the case for youth?
I love that the youth of St. Paul’s enjoy engaging in the community through serving others and the pre-COVID ways for youth to serve are not possible right now. Everything is different than it was, but it doesn’t mean that our youth can’t continue to serve others; it does mean that we have to think outside of the box and get creative! I’m hoping that we will be able to come up with ways for this positive engagement to still happen, albeit in a very different way.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Since I am working partially remotely, email is the best method to reach me.
I look forward to getting to know you!
