Youth

2019 Presbyterian Youth Triennium volunteer making up for lost time

Despite having worked in youth ministry at two Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations before becoming a marriage and family counselor, 72-year-old Gregg Dana has never attended  Presbyterian Youth Triennium (PYT).  He could’ve gone to the first two Trienniums in 1980 and 1983, but he was serving large PC(USA) churches with active summer programs.

Reaching young and old on a Sunday morning

Growing up, one of my favorite shows was Little House on the Prairie. The characters were old and young, likable and unlikable. Even though some (like the Olesons!) were petty and others made mistakes, they were always there for each other when it counted. Little House had story lines for both kids and adults on the show.

Let children ‘destroy’ worship

Quickly, kids! We need to get going or we’ll miss the service! This was my plea one Easter morning as I ushered my children out the door to make it to church. My husband and I served in different churches, and worshiping together was impossible. However, on this morning he was the guest preacher at a church that had a different worship schedule from ours. We were thrilled. Our family could celebrate together.
