In 2013-14, we completed a thorough study of our Youth Ministry locally and nationally (“Youth Ministry Reimagined“). Ever since, we have been on a crusade to do whatever possible to “make Youth Group accessible” to all students.
I am pleased to share some recent wins:
- We redid our permission form process for offsite events and retreats. Parent/Guardians can sign up their student via the online form at www.storiesof.us/offsite or a matching printed form.
- We reintroduced the K. Waterman Scholarship to help students attend their first retreat. (Four students were able to attend their first retreat this past August as a result.)
- We are now creating seasonal postcards with all of our upcoming events and mailing them to make it memorable for students and families to know what is coming up.
