COVID-19 and Youth Ministry

I've found some really great online resources to share with families looking to pursue faith formation at home. Now I'm looking for online resources to share with our Youth. How are you connecting with Youth over the next few weeks? What kinds of resources are you using to support the faith formation of Youth at home?

Thank you for sharing!

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

We're using our ministry social media accounts (mostly on instagram through stories and igtv) to put out devotionals and resources. We're hoping to also use our social media platforms to encourage families to engage in discipleship. So one example would be to share a short message and a few discussion questions so that parents could watch it with their kids and discuss it together over the dinner table. In terms of resources, we've been coming up with our own, continuing in our theme for this year. Some examples of things we're planning to do are: answering common questions students ask ("how do I deal with doubt?" or "how do I share my faith with my friends?"), table discipleship (for families to engage in), and some encouragement relays among the youth with shoutouts/@-mentions.

This Coronavirus Challenge and Photo Scavenger Hunt might be a neat option. Thanks for your good work in connecting with youth. It's so important!
