SPUMC Rooted YouthMatt Jones, Director of Youth Ministries

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

Hello Saint Paul’s!  So happy to be writing to you in the month of April!  I am admittedly excited to experience my first Easter season here at SPUMC as your youth director and enjoy all the excitement that comes with it.  Of course we are selling Easter Lilies in memory or in honor of loved ones, and as always the proceeds go towards youth missions.  With that being said I wanted to update you on recent happenings in youth missions.  We recently decided as a youth ministry to go to Copperhill, TN for our summer mission trip with Team Effort Missions.  In July we will head up there and work on landscaping, painting, and other light construction work for people who live in this rural community.  In addition, this past spring break we were proud to see one of our students, Tristan Turner, join the mission team to Nicaragua!  I wanted you as a church to know that because of your generosity through Boston Butts, Poinsettias, and the Chili cook-off we were able to make an international service trip for Tristan feasible and have plenty more available to help many students go to Tennessee this summer.  I’m happy to tell you that we have almost all of our spots filled up already for our summer mission trip!  I’m also happy to tell you that because of your generosity as a church I’m confident that none of our students will have to stress about a financial burden to go and serve this summer.  From the bottom of my heart I hope you know how thankful we are at ROOTED SPUMC Youth for your generosity and heart for our students. Now all we need are a couple of bus drivers and handymen or women and we’ll be set!  Don’t be afraid to let me know if you’d like to help us out in that capacity either!  God bless.
