Jennifer Llamas, Youth and Family Ministry Director
Prosperity is in the air at UCSA, and the youth ministry department is eager to breathe it in! Along with our entire church community, we are excited to celebrate our financial and spiritual successes. During the month of May, we will be revisiting some of our past lessons on Prosperity, celebrating Mother’s Day, celebrating our campus’s mortgage-free status, and preparing for our Youth-Led Service in June.
Each of our upcoming lessons over the next several weeks will center around the topic of Prosperity – what it means to live in a state of appreciation, openness, and flow. As we enter the month of May, we will begin by preparing our gifts to the larger UCSA community in recognition of our congregation’s successful payment of our Unity Heights mortgage! What a blessing this building has been and continues to be to the housing and success of our youth ministry program!
On May 12, we will celebrate our moms with a vibrant Mother’s Day celebration during class time and then a campus-wide celebration of Moms, Muffins & Memories after the 11:00 AM service! The presence of nurturing female energy in our lives is one of those intangible, but deeply felt and appreciated, gifts that sustain us. We are each richly blessed by this form of prosperous living!
Moving forward into May, we will joyfully embrace the mortgage-free life on our Unity Heights campus as we celebrate alongside our entire community. Not only are we in a state of celebration from a financial point of view, but also from the beautiful human connections this building allows us to nurture within its walls. There are so many ways to feel prosperous in this world!
And, finally, these next few weeks will allow our youth ministry children and teens to do a deep dive into what it means to share from our hearts. We are working towards a big project that will culminate with our Youth Led Service – so keep your eyes on this column for updates on how you can support our efforts and celebrate this beautiful prosperity along with us! More to come!
