Dear HSM Parents,
Welcome to our January Newsletter! If you are new with us each month we send out all the information that is going on within YOCF. Thank you for working with us through all of these changes in the past few months we really appreciate all of your patience and support! Hoping that you all had a safe and enjoyable Christmas Break and New Years! Things are going to look a bit different for our ministry in these next couple months. Make sure to stay connected to our instagram @yoyoyocf and the OCF youtube channel for updates! Check out down below our plans for the coming weeks and the ways we will be connecting with each other, daily, weekly, and updates for future plans.
We have a couple big changes for the next couple months, we have decided with a heavy heart that we will go to being fully virtual until at least Easter. With the spikes of COVID in LA & increased hospitalizations in the area, we think that it is best to cut back our in person meetings for youth. We want to be safe and aide our community as best we can. We know that the mental health aspect of our students has been heavily affected by the distance and that things being virtual is not ideal or can be fully the same as in person gatherings. If your student is struggling please let Ryan or I know how we can come alongside your family and be praying.
With that we have some changes in our program! Some being familiar and some being different. Make sure that you see our new times and ways that we will be providing to connect with your students!
Both Ryan & I are praying for you and your families! Hoping that they new year is bringing in new hope and reminder to represent love in a dark world. "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" (1 Corinthians 13:6). Let us bring this to mind as we look to God for the ultimate love and hope.
With Much Love,
