January Project ~ Beloved Community

Senior Youth group lead a full worship service each year, and this year we will be leading an online service on Sunday, Feb 21st! Our congregation will be exploring the theme of Beloved Community that month, and as we prepare to create our youth-led service, we will each be making a short recording of one person (it can be you, a younger kid at South Church, or an older adult. Your COA mentor would be great!) First talk a bit with the person about what the Beloved Community is (you could watch the MLK jr Video linked below) Then, Record the person answering the following three questions (you give them the prompts, and they answer):

This project was inspired by a similar project of the Episcopal church of Minnesota, and you can see their own version in the links above. You may also find it inspiring to watch Dr. Martin Luther King Jr speak about Beloved Community HERE

When you have made your recording of a South Church person answering the three prompts above, you can upload the file to this Google Drive. Try to have them done by the new year!
