SGP Tapestry Youth Collective
Tapestry is a cooperative of youth ministries among churches in the San Gabriel and Riverside presbyteries. It was formed by several youth pastors and directors about 7 years ago out of a desire and need to build a cohesive presence of youth at different exciting and faith-filled Jr. & Sr. High activities in the Southland. The PC(USA) is a connectional church and the benefit to live into that model is that it offers gifts of student spiritual formation each and every year.
Tapestry Mission Week
Tapestry's 10th annual Summer Mission Week has gone Virtual!
Join us as we partner with Presbyterian churches for daily adventures as we learn and serve in mission.
This is an opportunity for youth from churches to really dive into what it means to serve our communities in faithful mission partnership. Each day they will learn about a different social justice activity, dive into it and get their hands dirty, and then come together afterward to spend time praying for the work they just became part of for that day.
This week is open to all students, so invite your friends!
Incoming 6th - 12th graders
Our daily commitment will be a zoom at noon

The Presbytery created a Facebook Group for Tapestry so we can continue conversations about youth ministry in our presbytery's unique context.
We also just created an Instagram! @Tapestrysocal
