Youth Sunday

Youth Sunday

Youth Sunday at St. John’s traditionally occurs in late January, the same day as our congregational meeting. This is when the youth of our church (grades 7th through 12th) fill the roles of acolytes, crucifers, ushers and lectors for that day's service. In addition to serving at the altar as they would during the year, they are also greeting, handing out bulletins, operating our chair lift, handling the collection, reading the lessons of the day, and ushering during communion.

In 2010, Youth Sunday was taken to a whole new level. This year, members of our Youth Group selected most of the day's hymns, and shared their musical talents playing the baritone, viola, guitar and bass guitar during those songs. We had Youth Group members who led a children's sermon and prayer for our Sunday School students, and the main sermon of the day was also written by one of our 11th graders and preached by two Youth Group members.

On Youth Sunday we see a glimpse of the future of St. John's - and we all have a reason to look forward to great things yet to come.
