A "LIFT" During the Pandemic: Ministry with Youth

Posted by Liz Perraud at

Rev. Shanna KronkAssociate Pastor First United Methodist Church Burkburnett, TX We had our first LIFT meeting with youth (distanced and masked), and it was a HUGE hit!

Each table chose a scribe to record the group’s thoughts and inspirations....

One Great Idea: Yoga with Our Youth

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

Rachael TisdaleArk and Dove Presbyterian ChurchOdenton, MD Winter seems to be a tough season for so many of us. The sun only makes brief appearances, and we start to feel confined inside. So, our Recreation Coordinator at LOGOS came up with a wonderful idea to help renew our body and our mind – Yoga Night! We push aside all the tables, stack chairs, dim the lights, and throw our shoes in pile. Normally our recreation groups are based on grade level, but Yoga Night is special. From preschool kids to adults, we fit as many people into one room as...
