FIYAH GOES DIGITAL
FIYAH YOUTH MINISTRY
"If it’s not one thing then it’s another..."
I've read so much over the last week about the Coronavirus. We're seeing its effects and we've all heard about cancellations, including the sports we love, schools, and businesses.
With all the unknowns, there's one thing I'm sure of: how we as Christians show up during this time can help bring peace and hope to our world instead of fear and panic. At Hopewell, our doors are still open and welcome to those who want to worship in-person. If you or anyone in your family feels ill, please stay home.
During our this social distancing time in our country, our Sunday morning children's and youth worship services will meet digitally via the Zoom app. All youth are encouraged to join us for our regular worship and Bible Studies. Zoom login information will be detailed in your parent newsletter.
I recognize that most schools are closed for the time being and that may create frustration, boredom or cabin fever for our youth. Below I have listed some helpful resources to strengthen their spiritual growth while they’re focused on distance learning. These are useful resources and activities to integrate into their distance learning day.
Nursery & Children
- Kids Sunday School Place - Curriculum and Craft Ideas
- Teachers Help.org - Children's Ministry Resources
- Apple Sauce Kids - Free Children's Sunday School Resources
- God Calls Me - Coloring Page to Print (Google Christian coloring pages for more)
Middle & High School
For a while, I've been thinking about ways to get our youth more digitally interactive, as an extension of our normal youth worship/studies. We want to engage students who are not able to be present on campus. To address this we are working on additional online digital materials, youth Bible studies and youth worship service plans.
Stay tuned to our website and social media platforms in the next few weeks for more information:

Regardless of whatever else happens in the world, this is the perfect time for the church to be the church. To shine its light. To bring hope. This is an opportunity, not a disaster.
If you have any thoughts, ideas, or questions, please let me know!
