You may have noticed an energetic youth group around St. Andrew’s for the last few days, and wondered what they’re up to… You’ll learn more about it this Sunday, as this group has prepared and will run our entire 10 a.m. service on Jan. 29.
They are preparing for the Zambia 2017 Youth Exposure Tour, a three-week study/exposure experience in Zambia, in August 2017, for participants in Grade 10 to first year post-secondary. The focus of this trip will be education with an emphasis on the social, economic, cultural and religious realities in Zambia.
One of the core foundations of this program is to further our understanding of what social justice means and how to affect positive change globally, in both Zambia and in Canada. We will explore what God may be calling us to do as global citizens, how to make a meaningful difference in another part of the world, and discover how we can serve as members of the church outside of our local communities. The leaders are ministers Vicky McPhee from Symons Valley UC, and Tracy Robertson from Saint Thomas, both in Calgary.
