Matt 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
Happy May Saint Paul’s UMC! It is unbelievable to me that we are nearly halfway through 2017. I think you will all agree with me that the older we get the more time seems to just fly by. I wanted to take time out of this month’s epistle to express by deepest thanks to all who came out and supported the Easter Egg Hunt in April. It was a huge success, and with this being my first year experiencing it I was truly blown away by the level of support from the church & community! We had hundreds of children and their families on our church grounds that day taking part in the bounce house, Easter story eggs (from the children’s ministry), the lady bug release (from creation care), the egg hunts themselves, and of course our cake walk where we raised $350 for youth missions! Things like this event don’t happen without the hard work and dedication from our youth parents (specifically those who served on the egg hunt committee), our youth council leadership, and all our youth who came out to volunteer. It was a reminder of how much I have to look forward to in the coming year in working with all of you! Please read below to find out the few but important things we’ll have going on in May! Thanks and God bless.
