Talking to Young People
“’Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don’t be troubled or afraid.’” John 14:27
The news about the spread of COVID-19, commonly known as a coronavirus, and the response to it, has left communities and families wondering what to do next and how to prepare. First, take a deep breath. When considering how COVID-19 might have an impact our children, families and family units, and children’s ministries, we need to address concerns of children in age appropriate ways, address anxiety and fears of parents and guardians.
Here you'll find blogs and resources written and provided by our Children, Youth and Families team to help you engage with young people during this time.
We've also launched two brand new groups on Facebook for everyone involved in Methodist Church lay ministry with children, young people and families: Virtual Youth Ministry Forum and Virtual Children & Family Ministry Forum, spaces to meet and support. Join either or both!
