And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11 (ESV)

Adults play a vital role in the faith formation of young people in the church and show God’s care and mercy to young people outside the community of saints. May Paul’€™s prayer above to the people of the Philippi also be our prayer as we consider the young people in our midst. In daily interactions with young people, even apart from your role in preparing for special events such as Gathering, you provide Christian leadership and care for the young people of your congregation and community. Thank you for all you do!
