Youth Group

Dear Friends,

If you are a parent of a student (or you are a student) in 6th-12th grade, we invited you to be a part of our Youth Group. At CUMC’s youth fellowship, we practice three G’s. The 3 G’s are GROW, GIVE and GATHER. Each week, we GROW by learning the stories of the Bible and what they can teach us through devotionals, we GIVE by doing good for others in our church and community and we GATHER to have lots of stupid fun!

Adam Mottershead, Sarah Heath, and I are so excited to let you know the opportunities we have for our middle and high school students to GATHER this fall! **Please note, that your student’s safety is very important to us during these uncertain times. In planning, we have tried to choose mostly outdoor activities. When inside, we ask that everyone (students, volunteers, staff, and visitors) wear

masks over their nose and mouth. This will not last forever, and we are all in this together!

  • Students, 6th-12th grade, are invited to meet Adam and Sarah in the youth room (206) beginning at 10am for Sunday school.
  • Fundraising-There will be opportunities for students to fundraise money for mission trips and special outings. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 27th!
  • Special worship opportunities: There will be a few Sundays where youth will be invited to participate in the worship service.
  • Youth are invited to gather Sunday evenings for GROWING, GIVING and GATHERING! Below is a calendar of what we have planned this fall. We hope you will join us!

Lots of Love, Scarlette, Adam and Sarah
