Our youth chose the theme “Growth & Maturity” as they reflect upon their time as young adults embarking on adulthood. Music, readings, opening words, and reflections will be focused on this theme, and the sermon will consist of the youth and the trusted adults from the West Shore community sharing stories on personal growth. A specific thank you to volunteers Jeff Martin, Michele Tarsitano, Angie Tarsitano, and Kelly Pinkas for their mentorship and guidance, as well as joining our youth for this service.

It takes a lot to build and gain trust, especially as teenagers grow and see their friends change, become more aware of the current social and economic climate, and enter the working world. Find out what trust means to the youth in the congregation as they navigate through schools, church, spiritual lives, social justice activities, and their community. Our youth will discuss who and what they trust and how it will help shape their future worldview.
