Saint Paul’s Youth Covenant…

As a youth group we are committed to being respectful to all that enters our doors. To show respect we will disconnect from our electronic devices (cell phones, iPads, Nooks, tablets, etc…) so we can connect with each other. We will support one another through encouragement, accountability and love. We recognize to fully commit to this we must be honest with each other and be present in one another’s lives!

A Note from Matt Jones

Summer continues to be an exciting time at ROOTED! We got off to a great start in June with a fun kickoff weekend, the start of WAVE, and a great week at camp! Lately I’ve been reminded at the incredible spirit the youth at Saint Paul’s possess. Summer in Florida always has a level of randomness and unpredictability and with that comes the need to be flexible. We’ve had to make last minute changes multiple times in the past month and every time our youth never cease to impress with their ability to take things in stride. It’s been a good reminder that although changing and shifting in plans can be scary...you never know how great they can be when maintaining a positive outlook. July brings both times to slow down and relax, and times of great excitement and service! Make sure to read everything below to stay up to date. As always I’m thrilled to be doing ministry with the amazing youth here at Saint Paul’s. May the Lord bless you and keep you!
