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


Notes from MYF


Although this winter's been cold, and very little snow, our Youth group and many guests started their February with the annual ski trip on February 4th. Up at Windham Mountain everyone was able to enjoy the sunshine weather and fresh snow.

    Our youth group returned for the Souper Bowl of Caring the following day. As a church we raised an amazing amount of $335 and 68 food items for the Northport and Huntington food pantries. Thank you to everyone who donated.

Looking forward, the Youth group has started to fundraise for this year's 30 Hour Famine on March 4th-5th. We look forward to helping those who are in need of food by fasting for 30 hours in order to raise money and awareness.  We are very excited at the possibility of breaking the $100,000 mark for Centerport MYF's total contributions since we began participating in the movement several years ago!

 This month has been very busy and productive in helping many in need. We hope everyone had a lovely break, and warmth throughout the remaining winter. And remember our regular Sunday evening meetings are from 5:30-7:30PM. 



 




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!

SOUPER BOWL OF CARING

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Souper Bowl of Caring Project so successful.  Because of your generosity, we were able to donate 68 food items and $335 to the Huntington Food Council and the Northport Food Pantry!

 

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.
