Inspired by Youth 2011 (in photo), the Pentecost Circuit of Sacramento wants to keep the energy going for youth – so everyone got together and decided to start Youth Worship for the Greater Sacramento area. "We want to create the energy we saw from Youth 2011!" enthuses the Rev. Motoe Yamada, pastor of Japanese United Methodist Church in Sacramento and one of the featured speakers at the July youth event.
The first Youth Worship will take place at Japanese UMC on Saturday, Nov. 19. It will begin with a potluck lunch at noon, followed by worship at 1 p.m. – with new songs, great youth testimonies and speakers, new ways to dive into the Scriptures, and interactive prayer stations.
The event planning team includes youth from First UMC, Emmanuel UMC, Centennial UMC, and Japanese UMC, all in Sacramento.
Anyone is welcome to attend – youth may RSVP to their youth director or youth pastor, but someone needs to call in numbers to Gayle Kurasaki (firstname.lastname@example.org) to assist her in making preparations.
Japanese United Methodist Church is located at 6929 Franklin Blvd, Sacramento CA 95823. (Get directions from the Google Maps feature on the church's web page.)
