Adult & Youth Sunday Formation: November 8
Stories from Ecuador
Tucker Hemphill and Sue spent 9 days in Quito, Ecuador this past summer. They worked on construction projects, taught Sunday School, led the youth group, painted, and led workshops on faith formation for youth leaders and parents of Education=Hope students. Above all they spent time with the parish community of Buen Pastor. Come and get a taste of what they experienced and learn about how you might participate in such a journey.
Youth will be joining the adults for this week's formation experience.

Upcoming Adult Formation
November 22: Taking your faith around the world - YASC
Each year a corps of young adults head to many places around the world, spending a year serving because of their faith. Their ministries are varied and the placements are diverse. Come on this day and hear the story of one of those Episcopal young adults who chose to head off to the Philippines for a year and now is serving a second year in our church's corporate office. Came and meet Kayla Massey.
