Please Take the Youth Ministry Survey

As PAUMC moves into the next season of youth ministry we are inviting youth who this fall will be in 7th grade or higher and ALL adults to share your experiences with and hopes for youth ministry. We have two separate surveys. Click here for the youth survey. Click here for the adult survey. Paper copies of the survey will be available at a table in the hallway outside the sanctuary immediately before and following  worship on September 10 and September 17.  The PAUMC Youth Ministry Transition Team (Nathan Campeau, Kevin Farmer, Joanna Hallstrom, Terry Harris, Giselle Hayes, Candace Hurckman, Rebecca Kelleher-Reeth and Jonah Reeth) will review the survey results.

Thank You Kris Bjorke, Interim PAUMC Youth Minister

On September 24, we will say goodbye to Kris Bjorke. Kris began serving as our interim youth minister this spring and we are grateful for her role in sustaining youth ministry in this intervening period. In addition to tending to our youth, she shared her deep knowledge of youth ministry and facilitated discussions about the future of PAUMC youth ministry. Please join us in thanking Kris.
