Glow Weekend 2021 Coordinator Letter

Dear Students,

Can you believe that the first ever Glow Weekend is already over? Maybe the past few days have felt more like a week, or maybe they’ve gone by in the blink of an eye – whatever the case may be, we hope that you’ve been able to experience God’s love (and eat lots of candy) this weekend!

When planning this weekend, we had our fair share of hopes for what you’d leave with: new friendships, fun memories, closer bonds to this youth group, and most importantly, a renewed sense of how much God loves you. Our prayer is that you are glowing brighter than ever before and that you can continue to share that glow with the world even after we wrap up this weekend.

The past year has been challenging for many, and we know that attending church and youth group has been difficult at times. Maybe you haven’t been in a while and you feel a little distant from RSM. Or maybe this is your first time visiting our church, and you’re not quite sure how things work around here. Whether you currently have a “church home” or not, we want you to know that there is always a spot for you here at Riverchase Student Ministries. Although every week around here doesn’t look exactly like Glow Weekend, we like to think that we’re a pretty fun bunch, and we’d love for you to join us!

You can stay up to date with what we have going on at RSM through our Instagram @rsm_students and on our website at We hope you’ll stay plugged in as we kick off an amazing summer in just a few weeks!

Whatever happens after this weekend, we’re glad that you chose to spend your weekend with us here at RSM. Please come back anytime and reach out to the youth staff if you ever need anything. We love you guys!
