Youth & Adult LYM Gatherings


Every so many weeks a few of us gather to reflect on past youth events and plan upcoming gatherings. The YAT would love to add your voice to the plans. Next meeting dates will be posted soon.


Leaders are learners. Each youth ministry volunteer is asked to continue growing together with God and our team on behalf of our teenagers and church. We will take this opportunity to hear a presentation on an important topic facing teenagers and have an un-hurried conversation — which is just not possible during the normal course of our activities. Thank you, leaders, for your faithfulness! Next meeting dates TBD.
