Message from Trinity Anglican Youth Group in Marathon, ON

The following responses are from the Trinity Anglican Youth Group in Marathon, ON.  A discussion was held with the youth, who are on the average 10-12 yrs old, on where our church is and where we want it to be in 2019.

Where we are:

-  We are struggling – to keep people coming to church
-  We like our congregation, but it is a small one
-  We enjoy our church

What we want in 2019 for our church:

-  Want the world to be good to people
-  Where people don’t hurt people
-  No more war
-  Help feed the homeless
-  More spending time together – fellowship
-  Youth more involved in the church – more activities
-  Meet together more
-  More Fundraising for Mission Work
-  Youths to do more “good deeds”
-  Priests to give more help to those who don’t believe in Jesus to get the word out, to help them believe
-  Priests & Youths to go to people who can’t come to church and hold services or bible studies in their homes
-  Wheel chair accessible, easier accessible church
-  Youth Pastor – Sunday school
-  Give stickers or other promotional items to kids to encourage them to come out to service or youth group
-  Find ways to bring more of the youth to our church
