Youth Group Is On Break for the Summer
Youth Mission Trip 2017!
We are so excited to announce that we will send four of our youth and two adult chaperones to Sierra Service Project in Spokane July 16-22! Sierra Service Project works with Native American Reservations to help restore houses: painting, building decks or wheel chair ramps, repair roofs, lay linoleum and put up dry wall. They also get an opportunity to grow in their Christian faith and learn more about Native American history and culture. Dylan Smith, Brett Anton, Madilyn Murphey and Jonathan Giese are fundraising to support their trip. We are grateful for the amazing amount raised at the All Church Picnic back in September. It allowed us to reserve their spots. Cheryl Klein (Kim Murphey’s mom) won the bid on the quilt for $325. Thank you again for all who made bids! Again we are grateful to Sharon Meeds for the beautiful quilt.There will be other ways the youth will be fundraising! Thank you for being an amazing church that supports their youth!
At Browns Point UMC, the youth group is always growing, changing and trying new things. The focus is on learning more about God, reaching out in service and having fun. The youth group is open to all young people age 6th grade through the end of high school, and friends are welcome! Check out their Facebook page here.
During the meetings, the youth spend time as a group playing games, enjoying a casual meal together, and sharing joys, concerns and prayers. They also split into junior high and senior high groups to discuss topics relevant and of interest to each age group with a focus on how these relate bacYouth Group News!
The youth enjoy regular “fun night out” events that take place away from the church (soccer, bowling, backyard bonfires and laser tag) and mission activities that serve our community and congregation as well (food drives, volunteering at food banks, delivering care packages, and Christmas caroling).
