Junior Youth Group
A junior youth group meets from 3:30-5:30 p.m. most Saturdays, at Mafalie's Day Care in downtown Charlotte Amalie. The current course of study for the group is Walking the Straight Path. Stories have traditionally been a means for conveying moral concepts from one generation to the next. In this course, The Badi Foundation of Macau draws on this tradition by bringing together twenty stories from different cultures. Each story is relatively short and followed by a series of exercises designed to further comprehension, build vocabulary and enhance moral reasoning. Short quotations for memorization are also provided. Virtues development and cooperative playing of games are essential elements of the junior youth program, intended to provide them with important tools to guide their decision-making and actions as they mature into young adults. To register your junior youth, call 998-6212.

If you would like to join a study group that explores such topics as the purpose of life, realizing one's potential, prayer and life after death, call 776-7024 on St. Thomas or 776-6316 on St. John for additional information.
