We had a blast in our last Sunday School class for the year last week!
So what is going on with Youth Sunday School for the summer?
Traditionally...well...we'd take a break...and we'd be fully submerged into the summer CCSA (softball season) ministry, families would be on vacations, VBS would be starting up soon, etc.
Well, we knew this would be an ODD summer with COVID-19 and now we are experiencing it, as we cautiously enter the nicer weather, but still staying physically distanced from people. For the youth, this is extremely challenging...as I recall in my days of youth, we'd be out everyday hanging out with friends, going to camps, hugging, pushing, playing together and sweating on each other...etc....gross right? There was a time when that was acceptable and awesome and we all miss that, youth and adults alike!
As TCAC continues to change and adapt in all it's ministries, we will continue to pray and change to meet the needs of the youth in our church, but I would also like to encourage all the youth to be that "salt and light" to their friends from school, to their neighborhood or even to their siblings and cousins. So for this summer, I will be running the ALPHA YOUTH Series at the same Sunday School Time (11:00am-12:00pm) with the same ZOOM ID & Password. Come find out more this Sunday July 5, 2020 at our regular Sunday School time.
My challenge for all the youth and their parents is to INVITE ANY YOUTH who are finding this time of pandemic tough, hopeless, depressing or difficult to understand IN HOPES of introducing them to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour and Hope!
Keep checking your EMAILS and our WWW.TCACFAMILY.COM for regular updates, the Alpha Youth Series Dates for the summer will be released very soon and you will see the entire JULY & AUGUST times when we will run Alpha!
In the meantime, stay safe, stay hydrated (man it's HOT out) and keep your physical distance and wear a mask when you are out!
We are also updating our emails/contact information - if you need to be taken off the list or if you changed emailing addresses - please REPLY BACK and let me know.
