Our time together is always a blessing! Our young people are so important to God and to us, and it is with a joy filled heart I get to walk alongside our young people and share this lifelong adventure of moments that stretch us to grow in our faith and deepen our trust. Our expression of love for Jesus and one another brings us closer and changes us as we serve, worship, pray, learn, teach, work, care, reach-out and play together. We invite you to experience all the surprises God plants in our path this year…. so much to look forward to as we welcome in this new season “living full lives, full in the fullness of God.”(Ephesians 3:19 The Message)  Please connect with me, valeriejansson@gmail.com

“And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand… how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love really is.” (Ephesians 3:17-18, NLT)

Looking back to June with fond memories and apprecia-tion for the moving send-off our young people gave Pastor Ernest, Michelle and Ezra! They were so grateful for memorable gifts given and handmade keepsakes. A little piece of love from all our SYUMC kids went with The Belisle Family!  A special thank you to Joanna Lovely for her assistance.

Welcoming in this new season with God’s extravagant love,
