NEW COVID PROTOCOLS FOR PILGRIM CHURCH IN DUXBURY UCC
Fully Vaccinated: Mask-wearing for fully vaccinated individuals will be optional within our church facilities.
(Masks are required when entering the PCCP wing when school is in session.)
 
Non-Vaccinated: Mask-wearing for non-vaccinated individuals is still required indoors, as advised by the state and CDC
 
Any members, staff or visitor may continue to wear masks if they feel more comfortable. Staff working indoors directly with children will wear a mask when social distancing is not an option.

“Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.”

I love this quote from Robert Fulghum. Last Sunday we had a final Youth Group gathering before summer begins and welcomed 20 Jr and Sr High members for a cookout and some games and conversation. As we watched them gather and chatter, all naturally finding others to have conversations, to talk about future plans and past experiences, I was reminded of this quote. In my experience, some of the biggest concerns I have heard form parents is that their kids don’t seem to listen. Let me tell you, they ae taking their cues from you by watching how you handle challenges and celebrate joys, more so than you will ever know!

One of the highlights last Sunday was hearing our graduating seniors speak to the newest members of our group, sharing what they felt was the value of Church Youth Group. Statements such as “This group allowed me a place where I am accepted for who I am without pressure from others” and “I have so many memories of amazing adventures to take with me” and “My faith grew from this experience” all answered the important questions I always ask myself; “are we serving our children well?”

The answer is yes, and seeing this group come together to celebrate an emergence from quarantine as healthy individuals was awesome.

I am blessed!
