Hi Everyone!!!      

We are reaching out to all of you with some exciting news about the MYF Youth Group!!        

We are relaunching our new youth group format with the start of our Annual 30 Hour Famine!  

We are very aware that our youth are extremely busy with school work and sports and other extracurricular activities. We are also wanting the youth to have a safe place to go to deepen their friendships and relationship with God. Our youth group is very special and very mission/outreach driven. We want to help give them the opportunity to experience the faith-filled fun and fellowship of a unique youth group and one that can help empower their creative ideas and fit in with their schedules.  

We are changing the format of the CUMC MYF!! We will now be having First Fridays and 3rd Sundays. Our First Fridays will consist of dinner making and eating together with an activity and/or special guest from our congregation or community i.e., learning how to make pizza, taco bar, learning to paint, etc.  

Our 3rd Sundays will consist of youth-led ideas for community outreach i.e., visiting children in hospitals, pet shelters, collecting food for pantries etc. The youth will come up with ideas and tap into their own passions and creativity. Once an idea is presented we will meet on the 3rd Sunday and go out to serve the community!! 

We are hoping this will give ALL of the youth in our church an opportunity to come and be a part of our youth group. We will keep you posted. 

Our first event in our 30 Hour Famine and lock-in. I will be sending an email with details on that event. Thank you all and we hope to see you at youth group!!!!Gina and Ted



Stay tuned!!! Stay connected!!! 

Youth group meetings are Sundays 12-2pm in the youth room at church. Snacks/lunch is provided. Friends are welcome!!!!

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


¨ Run malnutrition centers when there’s a food


¨ Distribute emergency food supplies when

there’s a disaster.
