Laster Chapel UMC Youth Are 'Moving Toward Perfection in Love'


Laster Chapel UMC in College Park invests in youth and children in the church and community. 

The church is keeping with the 2018 Annual Conference theme – “Moving Toward Perfection in Love” – by giving youth a launching pad for their faith and their future while demonstrating love.

This summer, the church youth had an opportunity to display the skills they learned in church at the Metro Atlanta Kiwanis Club Prayer Breakfast.  

"Our youth highlighted the breakfast service," said church member Emma Dudley. "The Breakfast theme was 'A Little Child shall Lead Them,' and these young people, with great confidence, prayed, praised and worshiped." 

The speaker was youth group member Isaiah Clark. He was the first youth ever to lead in this capacity. Kyndall Ponder and Eddreonna Childs also had key roles.

"We love them, teach them, and send them out to spread their wings," said Dudley.

Lasters Chapel hold's a youth ministry celebration each summer. This year's event was at a local park with music, food, fellowship and fun. The congregation recognized graduates and their achievements at school, celebrated the Youth Choir and Youth Ushers, and also thanked all the members who give time and monetary gifts to the youth ministry.
