Youth of all ages participated in outdoor activities including hiking Kamiak Butte, riding bikes on the Bill Chipman trail, and playing at parks & playgrounds. The cooler weather and snow this fall has also given us the chance to go sledding!
A new Middle School Youth group has been established, as the number of kids in this age range has grown. We’ve had a couple of gatherings, and it’s been fun to see these kids take ownership of their new group as the older kids.
There were 8 kids confirmed in November, and an additional 5 more kids are currently in their first and second year of confirmation class. A majority of the classes are held over Zoom, and led by Pastor Daugs.
Needless to say, this has been a challenging year for everyone. I’m truly blessed to bear witness to how amazing and resilient our Emmanuel Youth are. I have enjoyed moments of normal, watching kids just being kids. You can see their eyes smiling.
