…sharing the love of Christ with Athens and the world!

Youth Ministry News

August Update

I just returned from a week at Montreat, the perfect ending to a wonderfully restful summer. The theme of the conference was Let Love Lead, and as we begin a new school year, I plan to be intentional about focusing on Love. In Sunday School, we will be introducing a new curriculum called Living the Word. Each lesson follows along with the Narrative Lectionary that will be used in worship, taking us on a journey through the Bible. “God’s plan for our world has not changed since the moment of creation. God created a world for people to work side-by-side in a community of love, justice and peace.” In Youth Group, we will meet together for dinner and fellowship, then break into middle school and high school small groups for a deeper discussion of how to put God’s love into practice. Of course, we’ll still have a night of bowling, roller skating and the Frozen Chosen Cup in addition to Fall and Winter Retreats! Confirmation Class will also be offered for youth in 8th and 9th grade, beginning with dinner and a blessing on September 8. It is going to be a great year and I can’t wait to see everyone at our potluck kick off on August 18.

Peace and love,

Kim Ness, Director of Youth Ministries
