Presbytery of Ottawa's Youth Working Group

The 21st century has brought a number of challenges to Christians and to the Church in general: How can we support our youth and youth leaders? What can we do to help them draw closer to Jesus? How we remind them they are part of a larger Christian Presbyterian community?

The Presbytery of Ottawa's 20 congregations created the Youth Working Group to support congregations and youth leaders in their youth ministry, and to organize and run a number of larger youth programs.

We also organize Leading with Care workshops and other training as may be required.

CE-YOW Workshop!

Are you a Youth Leader or Sunday School teacher? Are you trying to build your Christian Education Program? Wonder where to begin? How to sort through everything that's available? How to use whatever you find? If so, then this workshop is for you!

This workshop deals with the best practices in Christian Education. We're looking at:
- what you are trying to accomplish (purpose, vision, values, need);
- how children and youth grow spiritually (stages of development);
- how to choose curriculum that matches your goals and their spiritual development level; and
- how to work with and modify any curriculum.

This is your opportunity to look at different curriculum resources, explore what you can do with them, ask questions and get feedback! See you there.

When: February 23rd, 9:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
Where: St. Andrew's Presbyterian, Stittsville
Cost: $5
