Youth Rally and New Bible Study in Delmar!


Look for…a new Bible Study starting in Delmar at 
St. Stephen’s Church,
Wednesday, May 28

This will be a regularly meeting Bible Study continuing in the Fall!



We’re gearing up around here for our last youth event of the season, our last few Bible Studies, and summer camp!!! It’s an exciting time, and a busy one! We’re greatly looking forward to Youth Rally at the Diocesan Convention held annually at Camp of the Woods in Speculator, NY. This event is great fun every year, as we make use of the unique facilities of Camp of the Woods – the beach, arcade, rock wall, mini-golf course, and so much more – for our worship and fun. Youth Rally is also an opportunity for great fellowship – youth 7-12th grade stay together with the youth ministry team in Zeitfuss Lodge for the weekend, and 5th and 6th graders join us as well for worship and activities. Most of all it is a Spirit-filled weekend of worship and teaching!

We encourage youth to sign up, even if they don’t have a parent attending Convention – come anyway! Bring a friend or come as a youth group! Click the image above to link to the Episcopal Diocese of Albany website to register.
Keep the ministry team and the youth of this region in your prayers as we continue to minister through these youth events and Bible Studies.

God bless you!

Weekly Update
This weekend many young people with profound emotional, mental, and spiritual needs were ministered to by the Lord at the Youth Healing Retreat. We didn’t have many kids come needing physical healing – as can be expected for this age group – but the needs were still so great. And God did so much more than just heal! He spoke powerfully to the kids – calling kids, and leaders alike, into divine destiny in Him – through words of hope and love and purpose.
This has truly been the best retreat of the year!
Hebrews 11 talks about how each generation of God’s children is called to stand on the shoulders of the previous generation – building on what they have done in their time – and having a role in fulfilling their call. “And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.” [Hebrews 11:39-40] 
This generation is a Joshua Generation – inheriting the promises. Inheriting what the previous generations fought for to accomplish the promise, and it is an exciting privilege to minister to them and with them in this vision!

Youth Healing Retreat….May 16-18


The Youth Healing Retreat is truly a remarkable time through which our youth discover that our Lord is living and active, that He sees each of us and has an intimate knowledge of where we have been hurt in our lives, that He shares with us in our sufferings, and that He has the power to save, heal, restore and renew us all! 


Last year the Lord performed some incredible miracles at this retreat, and every young person left having had a very real and life-changing encounter with Jesus and we look forward to more breakthrough for the youth attending this year!
