This Tuesday (today) we WILL be holding our regular Bible Study at Christ Church, Ballston Spa from 6-8pm. These Bible Studies are incredible. The fellowship and fruitfulness among the youth and what Jesus is teaching us all week by week is truly of the Kingdom of our Lord. I can’t recommend them highly enough for youth in the Capital District who are searching for more of the Lord and more fellowship among young people their age. Come one, come all!
Our regular Sunday Bible Study is CANCELLED this week because of Easter. We will be back on however next week at our regular time of 5-7pm. We really look forward to it! Have a blessed Easter!
Unfortunately we have had to change the Spring Confirmation Retreat dates one last time due to a scheduling conflict with a regional confirmation at the Cathedral of All Saints on Sat. May 4th. The dates for the retreat will now be April 19-21. This will be the final change, and we apologize greatly for the changes. We know it is difficult to organize all the youth from your parishes to set aside a weekend for this retreat, but it is truly a powerful weekend for every confirmand that attends so we ask you to make every effort to ensure that they are able to attend. We, in turn, will make every effort not to make scheduling mistakes in the future! Registration forms for this retreat and all other upcoming retreats for this spring can be found by clicking on the icon to the left of this email labelled “Diocesan Website…”.

We are now beginning the search for our diocesan interns for this coming fall! If you or a young person you know (preferably aged 18-28) feels a call to grow deeper in their discipleship and relationship with Jesus Christ, and are discerning a call to some form of Christian Ministry then the Diocesan Youth Intern Program may be for you. This internship is a 6 month to full year commitment, and by God’s grace is designed to be a life transforming experience in their walk with God. Please contact Fr. Tyler Slade at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more.
We can’t say enough about what our Lord is doing in our weekly Bible Studies in Colonie/ Schenectady and Ballston Spa. Jesus is revealing Himself and the reality of His salvation and Kingdom to the youth who attend, and a little community is forming in each of the groups that is SO fun, loving and godly. We look forward to each meeting, to see what wonderful things the Lord has planned for all of us. If you have youth who have been thinking about attending these studies but haven’t yet for whatever reason I can’t encourage you enough to make the extra effort. I am confident in the Lord that it will be worth it!
