Happy New Year Everyone!!!!

    We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and celebrated joy with your families.  Our CUMC MYF is excited to begin our new year with fun activities and setting our intentions for 2019!!! 
 
Our Annual Christmas Caroling and Party were a hit!!! The youth traveled out into the community and sang our hearts out!! We ended our night with some great cookies, cocoa and fellowship.  Thank you all for welcoming us into your homes. Our December concluded with our Annual Christmas Party. This is always a special and fun event. We share food, fun and we can't forget our great gift exchange.  Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate the season with us!!!
 
With the new year, the youth are working on intentions.  We compared our lives to a book.  Our motivation was the quote, "Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one." This quote by Brad Paisley reminds us that we can write our own life and make it what we want it to be!! The youth are challenged to focus on one thought per month or "chapter." Our first "chapter" is to MOTIVATE AND INSPIRE OTHERS. We will have a new focus every month.  
 
BREAKING NEWS!!!! The youth group is now open to 6th graders!!! If you have a youth in the 6th grade, they are welcome to come to youth group! 
 
 
We meet every Sunday in the youth room 5-7 pm.  Come and join us!!!!!

Remember 100% of your donation goes directly to our local food pantries to help our neighbors. Let’s help them serve our neighbors!

 

HOW THE FUNDS OUR YOUTH GROUP RAISES ACTUALLY FIGHT HUNGER


Over more than six decades we’ve learned that the best way to fight hunger is to give families the tools they need to put food on their own tables year round. Our goal for children and families is food security. That means they can be confident about where their next meal is coming from — and that they get enough nutritious food to live an active, healthy life. Specifically, this means that the funds you donate help World Vision:


¨ Teach parents improved farming techniques.

¨ Equip families to grow healthier, more abundant

crops and livestock.

¨ Provide access to clean water for nutritious

harvests.

¨ Run malnutrition centers when there’s a food

crisis.

¨ Distribute emergency food supplies when

there’s a disaster.
