Good Morning, Church Family and Friends,
I want to take the time to welcome you all to our celebration of Graduation/Youth Sunday. It is a day when we recognize the importance of our Youth and Young Adults and their place in the world. Today is all about celebrating who you are and what you have achieved so far.
It's important to remember that while you're all here, this is not only about you—it's also about us! The older generation has so much to learn from you, and we hope that today can be an opportunity for us all to learn from each other.
One thing I've learned from working with Youth and Young Adults is that they have an incredible ability to see things clearly—they do not always have the same biases or assumptions some adults do. We also need their openness, energy, and faithfulness for our church and world to move forward—they are the ones who will carry the love of Christ to all the world.
FAUMC Graduates and Youth, you are awesome! You are my favorite people in the whole world, and I will cherish the time I have been blessed to be your Pastor. It has been a tremendous blessing being able to help you grow in your faith as Christians and hopefully, you will share your stories about how God has worked in your lives through the work and prayers of your church. So, thank you for coming today!
We hope that this will be your first step on a journey that leads you into an even closer relationship with God than ever before.
Now let's get going—I can't wait for us all to worship together today!
Pastor Clarissa
