A nine-day summer adventure in faith, theology, service, community, and

Do you know youth between 15-18 years old who are: seeking to explore
faith more deeply; looking to exercise their spiritual gifts,
leadership, and possible vocational callings; eager to build new,
meaningful friendships and community; and excited about putting faith
into action and making a difference in the world through urban
service-learning? If so, please encourage them to apply for Faith
Youth Institute: a seminary and urban immersion adventure of a lifetime!
FYI provides an opportunity for youth to ask difficult questions,
create and lead exciting worship services, do meaningful community
service work with the homeless community and dynamic urban ministries,
and have more fun than you can imagine! Our theme for the week will be
the Beatitudes in Matthew 5:1-12. Encourage youth to apply soon!
There are only several spaces remaining!

Also, save the date of Saturday, July 15, 7:00pm, in the Meetinghouse.
