Teenagers and young adults play an important role in our congregation. They take full part in our worship services and assist with many events at St. Paul's. It's not all work, though. Our Youth Group goes beyond the church hall to places like Funhaven, Gatineau Park for Ziplining and Mountain Orchard.
As part of the broader Presbyterian family, youth at St. Paul's also have the opportunity to participate in regional and national events like these:
The Amazing Race - May 19th to the 21st
Once again, Ottawa Presbyterian Youth will be holding their annual retreat at Gracefield Camp on the long weekend in May. The theme this year - picked by youth at October's Mission 5 to 5000 event - is Amazing Race.
We start planning the event in the new year: What is our biblical focus: the race (I Cor. 9:23-25) or the goal (Phil. 3:12-16)? Who will be our guest speaker? What activities can we develop that build on the scriptural foundation?
YOUTH LEADERS - Come to the Youth Working Group meeting and contribute your ideas and suggestions! We need you!
