December Note from Jacob

Greetings all,
This month really seemed to rush by. As many of you are now aware we are entering into another stricter season of distancing and planning. Most of the month of November went by with little issue other than the extra steps needed to maintain safe practices. I had the opportunity to meet with many students and young adults one on one, taking them out to meals or walking around the church property together. I also had the opportunity to call, text, and video chat with other teens and young adults. Although more distanced again I am appreciative of all of the time I get to spend with our wonderful students and young adults. Our confirmation class continued to meet in person but we are now transitioning online. I look forward to continuing our class time together, even if it is digitally.

There were several events/ activities that were planned for the end of November into December, but many of these are going to be postponed due to concerns over current events. That being said we are planning on doing some digital activities and zoom meetings together which, although distanced, will still be a good time.
Although current events will be limiting our meetings, events, and activities we are still planning on offering Sunday School and Wiggle worship through the month of December. We will also be doing smaller scale Advent activities, likely limiting these to only the students present in Sunday School, as well as continue to hold our confirmation class online.

We rest on the truth that God is still all-good and all-powerful and that He is full of love for us, His children.

For His glory, Jacob Oglesby
