Update from the Underground

Update from the Underground

by Sofia Fernandez, Director of Youth Ministries and Modern Worship

We are halfway through an exciting semester in the Underground! Between boba tea late nights, fun weekend retreats, and endless games of 9 Square and Bodies, the youth have kept busy.

In September, the youth went on their annual Fall Youth Retreat at Warren Willis. The theme of the retreat this year was Koinonia, focusing on the importance of Christian community. With faces both new and old, youth were able to grow in their faith individually and together.

Youth Weekend Retreat at Warren Willis

This month, we had the opportunity to participate in two community service projects. First, we partnered with Neighborly to provide essential supplies for refugees in Tallahassee. Second, the youth helped Trinity by making 300 snack packs for people experiencing homelessness in downtown (not to brag, but we did it in the min).

We are looking forward to an action-packed winter full of Christmas trees, chili, and Hanging of the Greens. We just finished up a series learning about the Holy Spirit: who it is, what it is, and how we engage with the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives. Next, we will begin a series on the power of the Gospel. If you have someone in your family who is of youth age, we would love to welcome them at any of our weekly meetings.
