The Youth Celebration Team from in Northeast Cobb will entertain audiences on Tybee Island June 5-7.
“This group shares the Love of God and conveys our Lord’s important messages to their audiences through the use of sign language, puppets, and voices,” said Lisa Springer, St. Andrew UMC’s director of youth ministries.
“By using their talents in these areas, they are able to leave a lasting impression on everyone who attends one of their performances. Every summer, St. Andrew organizes a variety of mission trips specifically for its youth group,” Springer said. “These trips include a Youth Celebration Team Tour, YouthWorks Mission Trip, Appalachia Service Project Mission Trip, and a Youth Praise Band Tour.”
Springer will accompany the St. Andrew youth on its Tybee Island tour, as will the group’s co-directors, Carol Holmes and Laurel Resendez. The youth and adults going on this trip also include Kirklin Dowdy, Kaydee Gallant, Jennifer Holmes, Glenna Ingle, Haley Owenby, Rachel Resendez, Olivia Resendez, Jessica Siragusa, Rachel Woods, Elizabeth Zavodny, and Meredith Bass.
“All of us here at St. Andrew enjoy the performances of our Youth Celebration Team, and we know they’ll make a wonderful impression on the folks down in Tybee Island,” said Rev. Mack Riley, senior pastor of St. Andrew UMC. “We are all extremely proud of these young people for the work they do spreading the word of God through this unique ministry.”
