It’s our 5th Sunday special Youth/Adult service this Sunday, March 31st and our youth co-teacher leads and Rev. David have created a rewarding process around unfolding your spirituality to wrap up our month-long theme on Integrity. We will look at where we have opportunities within our regular routines that we can turn into a spiritual practice to deepen our inner life.

We will create group appreciation circles for the process of unfolding our spirituality and take home a special gift created by the teens to help us be in integrity with our continued spiritual practices in our daily lives.
