  • News

Churches organized youth-led outreach and service projects.

Chesapeake Conference churches celebrated Global Youth Day on Sabbath, March 16, by turning their focus toward the youth in their congregations and empowering them for service in the community. 

Several churches on the Eastern Shore gathered at Dover First Church in Delaware for a Global Youth Day weekend of activities. The festivities began Friday night with vespers and continued on Sabbath with a special Sabbath School and worship service, during which youth dressed up in traditional attire of their cultural heritage. In the afternoon, young people passed out hand-made cards and refreshments to first responders at the local police and fire departments. 

Youth from Ellicott City Church visited the Urban Life Center in Baltimore, where they participated in the Kindness Project. They painted rocks with Jesus-centered messages that the Urban Life Center will spread throughout the community to remind people of Jesus’ love.

Pathfinders from SALT Church in Randallstown, Md., celebrated Global Youth Day by crafting cards for nursing home residents and sick and shut-in individuals. Following this, they engaged in an educational session about fire and rescue services.

Frederick Spanish Church youth visited a local park where they handed out hot chocolate and offered prayer to people walking by. They also passed out evangelistic literature and Bible verse slips about God’s love and peace. 

Global Youth Day was launched by the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church on March 13, 2013. The vision of Global Youth Day is to recapture the reality of Adventist youth as a global movement mobilized for service, contributing to the proclamation of the everlasting gospel and ushering in the second coming of Jesus Christ.
