Youth Leaders Get-Together!

Hi youth leaders, pastors, CE directors, etc,

No matter how many youth your church has, summer is a great time to do exciting mission and fellowship activities with them. You’re invited to come to a youth leaders get-together to share your own church’s plans for summer youth activities, and learn about programs for your youth to take part in! 

Join us for an open house from 5-7 on Wednesday, April 12 at Lovin’ Cup Bistro (300 Park Point Drive in Rochester). We’d love to have you come learn and share together. If you can’t make it, feel free to send someone else from your church or just ask us for notes about summer opportunities. 

Thanks,

Katie Styrt.

Mission Day Movement

As we journey through resurrection and the season of rebirth we are likely moved to new projects and new actions. Some of these new actions may be individual and some may be corporate. Outreach to our community is a great new action for this season of change.   This year rather than participating in a presbytery-wide event, PGV churches and neighborhoods are encouraged to develop mission and outreach activities suitable to their own context.  Given our evolution to the new PGV model of “bottom-up” support to churches (rather than “top-down” ) the Mission & Advocacy and Resource & Education Committees stand ready to provide support (e.g. resources, publicity, connections, etc.) for the formation and implementation of  church developed mission activities or events. Hopefully the collaboration between congregations will result in some unique new events – or rebirth of previous mission activities. Contact Susan Orr at [email protected] to make connections or for more information on creating new mission events.

Introducing PC(USA) Denominational Children’s Curriculum

Growing in Grace & Gratitude

Here is a very short video to help get the word out about a PC(USA) curriculum

A Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denominational children’s curriculum will help transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grace and gratitude.

Growing in Grace & Gratitude is rooted in the foundation of Presbyterian identity where God’s grace and our gratitude are the heartbeat of our faith, life, and worship. The curriculum extends an invitation to discipleship that inspires children to learn and practice hospitality, generosity, and love, and it reaches beyond Sunday morning, encouraging children to live their lives as an expression of God’s grace.

Published by Congregational Ministries Publishing, Growing in Grace & Gratitude is a quarterly curriculum available in English and Spanish. Each session shares a Bible story that reveals God’s grace for us. Through fun, age-appropriate activities, prayer, and singing, children and their leaders will celebrate the meaning of this grace in their lives as they encounter a living God.

“This is the way you teach Reformed faith to children,” said Lib Caldwell, noted Presbyterian educator and professor emerita at McCormick Theological Seminary. “With thoughtful biblical background for the teacher and age-appropriate learning activities, children will grow in their understanding of God’s grace as it is revealed through biblical stories.”

Churches can try Growing in Grace & Gratitude for free by ordering a sampler in English or Spanish at pcusastore.com.

Congregational Ministries Publishing is the denominational curriculum publisher of the PC(USA). Its mission is to bring glory to God by inspiring, equipping, and connecting Presbyterians of all ages with faithful, affordable, educational resources that further commitments to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
