Youth Sunday is May 19th!
Youth Sunday gives us all an opportunity to celebrate our amazing young people, their leadership, and gifts. It is also a special moment to focus in on the unique ways that retreat and camp ministries are empowering and formational.
Currently, nearly one half of all ECMN's faith communities participate in these collaborative programs. In 2018, there were 436 children and youth who participated in Pre-TEC, MN TEC, EKID, SINC, EYQC, ECAD, and EYMC. Furthermore, many faith communities also engage in local retreat or camp style programs.
There are many ways to participate in Youth Sunday:
- Invite a young person to tell their faith story
- Invite a young person to talk about their retreat or camp experience
- Take a special offering for the Bishop Brian N. Prior Youth Scholarship Fund to help even more youth access camp and retreat experiences
- More ideas, resources, and videos will be available as the day approaches!
