Middle School Youth Forum!
 
 
Sunday is a time for the whole family at St. Andrew’s, and so while younger siblings are in Sunday School, mom and dad are grabbing a cup of coffee and enjoying fellowship or our adult forum, and older siblings are in High School Youth Forum, we invite Middle School students to participate in a youth experience just for them! They meet in the Fireside Room to talk about their daily lives, share high and low points from their past week, pray together, and most importantly, take part in a Bible study designed to help them connect the Bible, Lutheran teachings, and their faith to their daily lives. 
 
Each study uses a YouTube clip, it may be a new’s story, a popular music video, a clip from a movie, or another kind of clip… but it is something that youth relate to. Then they talk about the themes in that video… and how they relate to them…this includes topics like self esteem, peer pressure, drugs, sportsmanship, making priorities, and managing time and stress.  Next a Bible Verse is read, youth are encouraged to look at how the Bible Verse relates to the theme they are talking about and challenged to connect that verse to their daily lives. This is a great way for youth to grow deeper in their faith!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Youth Ministry IS Our Ministry
 
It takes so little to show a young person that you care! A little bit of your time can make a big difference, and youth ministry is FUN! 
 
We can’t do it without YOU!!!!
