Youth Sunday 2016. Did you know that the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) calendar lifts up a special Sunday that celebrates the gifts of young Presbyterians by having them lead what is always a creative, interactive, and engaging service? Our “Youth in the Church and the World” emphasis is traditionally the second or third Sunday of August—a time of transition for most teens and their families. Summer mission trips have happened. Camp has come and gone. Youth conferences have been attended, but continue their impact. Back to school and new school adventures await. Youth in the Church and the World Sunday is a wonderful day to hear the voices of the young people in your church, to be challenged by their leadership, and to be encouraged as they share their faith. This resource is being shared with you so that your church—if you are looking for inspiration—will have a place to start your planning!
Youth in the Church and the World emphasis for 2016 is Sunday, August 21
