Youth & Family Ministry
Youth & Family Ministry is doing some adjusting and growing as we journey through our transition.
In 2018 our students participated in a number of events!
Our students helped host Bishop Suffragan’s Ball at St. Mark’s Glendale
Participated in Los Angeles City Pilgrimage with the Diocese of Los Angeles
Went to 30 Hour Fast
Helped host Grog-A-Polooza at COS for the Diocese of Los Angeles
Helped start and fund raise for Laundry Love with St. Mark’s Altadena
Brendan Kim (Jr. at Gabrielino HS) completed his Eagle project benefiting Our Saviour Center
Margot Saldebar & Brendan Kim entered into a Confirmation Discernment process and were Confirmed by Bishop John Taylor at St. John’s Cathedral.
Weekly Youth Groups were had, pizza and snacks were eaten and Harper Ruth became a regular guest!
In 2019 we are looking to change some things, grow a little bit and look to the future of Youth Ministry. With our Point Person, Vestry Liaison and Students, we have been engaging in an Asset Mapping Process to develop some goals around where our excitement is!
From these goals:
A group of students has gathered to start a band
We have started planning some events with other Churches
We are going to host a fun “Summer-ween” event
We will be started a regular Evening prayer opportunity for all on Sunday afternoons designed to close our stressful weeks in prayer and begin refreshed
This is an exciting year all around and our students are already engaged in lost of activities around our Church!
