Here we are at the beginning of our Lenten season. A time where we examine what is working in our lives, what is not working and letting go of things that weigh us down. I picture Lent as a spiritual spring cleaning. The Children and Youth Ministry staff is doing the same self-examination related to the work we do here for our St. Andrew’s Children, Youth and Families. Specifically, we want to examine the way we communicate information to you to see if we need to do some spring cleaning. This past fall we launched the Children and Youth Newsletter. We previously sent two separate newsletters, one to children and one to youth. We decided to combine the two newsletters and add things that weren’t previously found in either newsletter. We have been sending this newsletter out for the last eight months and now we would like to hear your thoughts about the information you are receiving. Below you will find a link to a short, seven question survey that will only take five minutes of your time. Our goal is to have as many people fill out this survey as possible. We want the Newsletter to offer the information, stories, and resources that families want. Your participation and thoughtful, constructive feedback will help us with our own Lenten spring cleaning and enable us to better serve the children, youth, and families of St. Andrew’s.
