Youth Ministries Update - 8/3
Hello & Happy Back-to-School Season!

I hope this email reaches you well! As you may know by now, I'm Emily Elder, the new Director of Children & Youth Ministries. I'm happy to be at Epiphany, and I look forward to getting to know you better! Whether you're a youth or a parent, please know I'm available and would love to meet with you--I'm only an email or a phone call away.

A word about this newsletter: This newsletter will be sent out every Wednesday, for the purpose of updating you on youth events at Epiphany. It will also include a short devotional reflection, or a recap of past events or formation classes.

In today's newsletter, I want to highlight a few exciting upcoming events.

Youth Group Update - Timing Change!

Beginning with our welcome back party on August 14 (for youth + families), youth group will run from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. this fall! This extra 30 minutes together will give us more time to share stories, listen to each other, play games, and explore important questions surrounding faith, service, and community.

We also hope to bring back meals at youth group (at least 2x/month), because we know how valuable it is to break bread together! If you are interested in providing meals for any of the youth groups this semester, please fill out this form.
