Children, youth and their families are an important part of the Body of Christ at St. Paul’s-on-the-Hill. Jesus had a soft spot for children and young people, and so do we!
This fall, we are looking to Re-Connect with our children and youth,
and to Re-New our ministries.
We are beginning the search for a Family Minister/youth worker, but conversations with some of the youth in the parish indicate that they want to begin meeting together right away. We hear that.
So while it may not be perfect, we’re going to make a start. Myself, Judy and Peter Kirwin are going to take the lead on youth programming until we hire a new staff member and we’re working off some 49 ideas.
Re-Connect: Youth Group

We start a zoom series exploring “Tough Questions of the Faith”. Rev. Stephanie will lead us in a study - this time looking at Church failures, & how we respond to the issue of residential schools. We end with Codenames, Among us and online games of youth choice.
Sunday, September 26th: 7:00-9 pm, in person at St. Paul's
Tonight is our Frontline Worker Timmie's Campaign Art-a-palooza in person! We'll be creating thank you cards and #positive placards to express our thanks to the Ajax-Pickering hospital ICU workers. We will also be collating the Timmie's cards we've received thus far, as part of our Thanksgiving Drive. (This event qualifies for volunteer hours for those needing them).

We continue our series exploring "Tough Questions of the Faith." Rev. Stephanie will lead us in a study - what does the bible have to say about climate care? How have Christians responded - well, or badly - in the past, and what can we do better?
