Christmas Joy Offering – Supporting our leaders: past, present and future.

Presbyterian Youth and Triennium

The talent behind the trio of Triennium resources

After sharing last month the free downloadable resources created to inform possibilities for Triennium-related celebrations in the local context, Gina Yeager-Buckley jumped at the chance Monday to bring along some of the talented people who created the resources related to group study, recreation, and worship and prayer — and are on the verge of creating even more resources in the weeks to come.

‘So much more than an event’

‘It’s hard to kill your darling’

The pandemic has indeed nixed the planned in-person Presbyterian Youth Triennium this summer. But youth leaders across the country are coming up with local and regional gatherings and other offerings for youth and young adults, including six presbyteries in Pennsylvania planning an event they’re calling the Presbyterian Youth Tri-PENNium, to be held at the Krislund  Camp & Retreat Center in Madisonburg.

All hands on deck

Wednesday’s edition of Leading Theologically took on a nautical theme as host the Rev. Dr. Lee Hinson-Hasty and guest Gina Yeager-Buckley launched into this topic: “Turning the Ship: What Ministry Feels Like Right Now.”

Helping our youth flourish

The PC(USA)’s annual Pentecost Offering supports children, youth and young adults at risk through many ministries.

‘You cannot love if your heart is not soft’
