Youth Group participating in one of our fabulous 30 Hour Famine programs. Great job!!

Notes from MYF


  

The youth started their February helping near and far.  Souper Bowl Sunday kicked off our month with great participation from our congregation.  Thank you CUMC!!!! We were able to donate both food and money to our local food pantries.

 

We also began to prepare for our 30- Hour Famine this weekend, March 1-3.  We watched a video on hunger around the world and how we can help! We talked about how this relates to our own lives and the simple things we take for granted.

We also started our very own "Ramp" build. Stay tuned and you will all see the results and why we took on this project!!!

 

We are looking forward to our Famine Lock-In and learning more about how our efforts are helping others. We can't wait to share our experience with our CUMC family!!!

COMING UP: SOUPER BOWL OF CARING 
FEBRUARY 3, 2019

    Every year on Super Bowl Sunday, our MYF collect cans of soup and monetary donations after service that they then donate to our local food pantries – check out Souper Bowl of Caring online (souperbowl.org) to learn more about this program. At the end of service they’ll be holding big soup pots where you can place your donations – cans and monetary! Remember 100% of your donation goes directly to our local food pantries to help our neighbors. Let’s help them serve our neighbors!

 

COMING IN MARCH!!!
MYF 30-HOUR FAMINE
MARCH 2-3, 2019

    Our Youth will again be participating in World Vision’s 30-hour famine. They will be fasting for 30 hours and ask that you support them with your prayers and words of encouragement in this difficult thing they do. They are also accepting monetary donations. If you’d like to contribute, you may make your checks out to Centerport MYF with 30-Hour Famine on the memo line and give it to one of our youth, Gina or Ted.. Thank you!
 
Þ WHAT: For 30 Hours, they’re going hungry to raise funds to help hungry children around the world.
 
Þ WHY: Every day, over 7,000 kids die from hunger-related causes. The clock is ticking and we are taking action now!
 
HOW YOU CAN HELP:

1. Give. Every $40 they raise can help feed and care for a child for one month. Make checks payable to Centerport MYF and give them to one of the youth or Gina or Ted.
 
2. Volunteer. There are many ways you can help. Join them for an eye-opening Famine weekend.
 
3. Pray. Ask God to bring us together and to help those in need every day.
 
Thank you for your support!!
 

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.
