The issue of mental health and wellness among our youth in Singapore has been in the headlines lately. The recent incident at River Valley High School where a 13 year-old was allegedly attacked and killed by a 16 year-old who was struggling with mental health issues is heartbreaking.
I can only imagine the grief and loss the parents and family of the 13 year-old must be experiencing. At the same time, I feel deeply for the 16 year-old and his family too. Could this tragedy have been avoided? Is there more we can do for our youth?
I know some of our congregants are alumni of River Valley High School and I just want you to know we are here for you. Please reach out if you need any support. Also, there may be others out there who may be struggling with mental health and wellness issues, especially during this Covid period. Please know you are not alone, and if you need someone to talk to, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
People often say our youth are our future but how much have we thought about and invested in our younger generation at FCC?
This Sunday, we are excited and privileged to have Pastor Charmaine Nah, lead pastor of The Evolution, as our guest preacher. The Evolution is led and run by Millennials, Gen Z and younger, and their resolute hope is to build a community that constantly evolves with God as God moves with creativity and justice in our world.
Come join us this Sunday as Pastor Charmaine shares about Ecclesia and Youth.
