Hello friends . . . grace and peace,

In today’s world (2023) we don’t have to be in the same room as other people in order to be together. Zoom, FaceTime, Discord, Slack, WhatsApp, etc. They all connect us to other people. And it’s amazing to have these tools in our hands. They help us and can make our lives better.

None of those things existed 20 years ago. The world is a fundamentally different place than it used to be. Things have changed and shifted and morphed and progressed. Those aren’t bad things at all. Differences and changes aren’t bad. They just . . . are. And in a post-COVID world, just about everyone has stepped into a new way of doing things, whether it’s school, work, family, and yes, even church.

2,000 years ago, church looked really different from today. The same is true for 1,500 years ago. 1,000 years ago. 200 years ago. 50 years ago. 3 years ago. Again, this isn’t a bad thing. Church has always changed and shifted and morphed and progressed.

Here at the STYG, we’re all about inviting you to invite God to be a part of your always changing, ever shifting, constantly morphing, and progressing life. And in the Way of Jesus, the best way to do that is to do it together. Sometimes that means we’re all together in the same room, or on weekend retreat, or on a trip, or doing something for others. But our goal is do this whole God/Jesus/bible/Church thing together.

You’re invited to check out things like Film School and Youth Group and D-Groups and a Love Journey as well as Sign Up For Stuff like Contagion and The Fall Lock-In and #EpiscoWisco Summer Camp and Six Flags and lots more! If you’re in 6th-12th grade, you’re invited. All are welcome!

peace to you
