Youth Sunday was an incredible success. There was as much departure from our usual structure of worship as there was familiarity and comfort in the liturgy. 27 youth, from 12th graders all the way down to 2nd graders led everything in worship, and I do mean everything. Lectors, musicians, ushers, communion assistants, preachers, assisting ministers, acolytes, crucifers – you name it, they were underaged and under no question that they could rise to the challenge. With beautiful music, inspiring preaching and hearts and hands of service in our worship, these youth impressed not just their parents, pastors, and youth director, but the congregation as a whole as they shared their worship with us, in their own voices. Thank you, Community, for allowing these young people the freedom to express their faith in their own voice and for being such strong supporters for them!
