Week 2 – Witness & Prophecy
In light of the ever changing landscape of youth ministry and the recent COVID restrictions that we are going through our office has provided this push and play model for youth night engagement of teens at your parish.
Youth Ministers are invited to use the downloadable PDF of the Virtual Youth Night below to assist in planning of your upcoming youth nights. We will continue to release youth nights throughout the next weeks of Advent.
Purpose: To invite youth to explore the topics of witness and prophecy. The goal for the youth is for them to be able to look through the events of their lives and see where God has been working. After doing so they will establish ways that they can share that witness of God to others in their everyday life.
