Rooted Growing Branching

Youth Service – Nov 2016

The youth led our service on 27 Nov 2016.  It was well done and garnished lots of compliments — which has led some of them to fear they will have to do it more often… :-)  There were even new elements to the service, including having the children’s story shown on the projector for all those kids-at-heart in the pews, a spare change collection in hats for oneROOF (though we are going to have to pick some hats that are harder to spill in future, or the congregation has to get more adept at handling them).  The “sermon” was a prereorded video of congregation members’ answers to, “Where do you think God’s peace, love and justice are needed today?”

She did a great job. And when she grows more, we’ll be able to see her.

A number of kids helped and there were visuals for the young-at-heart in the pews to follow along.

Let’s not forget the tech guy! Without him, we would have seen and heard a lot less.
