Youth Devotional Project

Youth and Young Adult Devotional Project

We are developing a devotional for youth and young adults. One of our vision priorities is “being the definition of a faith home” and we are hoping this project will allow the youth and young adults to explore their faith, share their faith, and become better acquainted with each other. We are also hoping this project will provide a resource that can be used by other individuals and families in the congregation and the community as a spiritual resource for inspiration and comfort.

The devotional entries will be very similar to the devotions included in the Upper Room daily devotions. We have a list of prompts below to help generate ideas and topics for the youth to consider. Because some youth find it easier to express their ideas through poetry or graphic art, we can also include those types of submissions.

We would like to receive the entries by August 19 and complete the editing process by the end of August. Hopefully, we will be able to make copies of the devotional available by the end of September for youth, college students, and others.

We are hoping each youth and young adult in the church will participate. However, no one is required to submit a devotional entry. For those in grades 6 and 7 who will probably participate in the 2020 confirmation class, this will be a great “head start” on one of the confirmation exercises.

To facilitate a convenient and an efficient process, entries can be submitted via Google drive by sharing your document with Mrs. Deanna Bloom at by August 19, 2018. We realize the deadline is not very far away. The goal is to gather the devotional before current students jump into the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for your willingness to participate and your enthusiasm. If you have any further questions, please contact Mrs. Deanna Bloom or Rev. Jon McCoy.
