Looking Back on 2020— At our Youth Christmas Party in December (See Picture Above), one of our icebreaker questions was "what did you gain from 2020, that you are excited to take into 2021." Many of the students responded with answers such as patience, new friends, gratitude for family time, prioritizing those who matter most, etc. Personally, I am so grateful for all that the student ministries at St. James UMC has done and come through over the past year. During our short time of in-person and socially distanced events, we were averaging more numbers of students per event than we were before the pandemic. Between Confirmation, Sunday School, and Sunday Evening Youth Group, the Student Ministries at St. James UMC have been impacting about 30 students per week. This is incredible, and each of these students are growing closer to one another and growing stronger in their faith. I am so grateful for all that the Student Ministries has done in 2020, and I am definitely excited to bring it all in to 2021! Happy New Year!
