UM Youth Fellowship

               null       In UMYF news

The Youth are working on exploring Christian disciplines. Our challenge is to find something we know we will miss to give up for the season of Lent this year so that when we think about that item we will turn our focus to God. 

null     Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser – Saturday, March 10th, Youth need to be at church by 3 pm, dinner is served at 5:30 pm. Tickets will be available by Sunday, February 11th. You will be able to apply 90% of your ticket sales toward your trip! 10% will be collected and donated to a local mission effort. The income from the dessert auction will be divided out among those who help serve the dinner.

     30 Hour nullFamine – March 2nd-3rd  Yes!! Back by popular demand, we will be attempting another 30 Hour Famine type event! Our goal will be to educate ourselves concerning the issue of Hunger in our country and around the world. We will have a ton of fellowship, participate in the Rise Against Hunger Event at Pitts School, watch a couple movies, and play some games. All this plus going without food for about 30 hours! We are asking Youth who participate to raise $50 in donations from family and friends that we will donate to the Rise Against Hunger project. We will conclude our event with a meal on Saturday evening. You must register for this event. Registration will be sent out by Feb. 1, 2018. Chaperones Needed!!

     Spring Retreat Set!!! March 23rd-25th – Camp Cheerio!     We are headed back to Camp Cheerio for our Spring Retreat! Cost is $150 per person and includes all meals, which by the way were incredible!! Our focus nullwill be on the discipline of fasting! No just kidding, we will be focusing on the discipline of prayer.  Cheerio was so much fun last year. There is archery, bb guns, canoeing, disc golf, hiking, and several more activities we can do! Deposit of $50 due by March 1st..
