Notes from MYF



    MYF had a wonderful and busy December! We held our annual Christmas Party, and had a great time celebrating the season as a group. We also spread holiday cheer to members of our community by going to their homes and Christmas Caroling. MYF is looking forward to many fun events in 2017!           

We will start with our annual ski trip on February 4th at Windham Mountain.

On February 5th, we will help our local food pantries by participating in the annual Souper Bowl of Caring. We will be collecting non-perishable foods and monetary donations for the Northport and Huntington Food Pantries. Please consider donating to this worthy cause.

We are very excited to begin planning for this year’s 30 Hour Famine on March 4th and 5th.

 




Our regular Sunday evening meetings (5:30- 7:30PM) began on October 2nd.

Come join us on your own or with friends. All are welcome!



We truly appreciate your support!

MYF 30-HOUR FAMINE


MARCH 4-5, 2017


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, Colleen, or Gina.  Thank you!

 

WHAT:  For 30 Hours, they’re going hungry to raise funds to help hungry children around the world.

 

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 Colleen or Gina. 

 

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.
