Our youth are a group of great thinking missionaries filled with strong character, individual personalities, and perceptive senses of humor. They are a fine representation of St. John’s.
Their theology, leadership, and care for one another continually amaze all who come in contact with them. Every Sunday evening these individuals from all types of families and backgrounds come together to form a “group.” They pride themselves on being unique individuals (and they distinctly are) and yet that is also what connects them. They have a great love of their youth group and of St. John’s. This is where they CHOOSE to be.
Our youth group meets regularly on Sunday mornings at 9:15 in the Garden Room.
Our current study includes a new “Being Anti-Racist” series. We will be using activities from the book, This Book is Anti-Racist: 20 Lessons on How to Wake Up, Take Action, and Do the Work. We will also be using references from several resources and even from other people’s experiences.
It is important for us to continue studying things like this, especially since to be antiracist is the way of Jesus. As United Methodists we stand against racism. We are called to love one another like ourselves, and by continuing to learn and to grow as people we are able to do that more fully.
To strive for justice for all is to be like Christ.
