Building on the foundation acquired in the Kairos program, St. Martin’s youth begin to engage reason as they attempt to live out Christian moral values in the world.
FUSE: Form. Unite. Serve. Empower. Under this new heading, this year in youth ministry we’ll be exploring what it means to be a community in the Body of Christ. From discussions and scripture study, to social events to retreats, we’ll be exploring spiritual practices, tackling hard questions, and deepening our faith together as we look for God’s path and God’s time in our lives. FUSE represents key ideas for our community exploration.
Join us as we seek together!
