Youth & Adult LYM Gatherings

YOUTH ADVISORY TEAM (YAT) MEETINGS
Sunday, August 13
12:15 pm - 1:30 pm, The Zone

Every so many weeks a few of us gather to reflect on past youth events and plan upcoming gatherings. We will eat, reflect on how the fall is going so far, and look forward to upcoming events including the winter retreat. The YAT would love to add your voice to the plans!


LYM GROWING GATHERING
No meeting currently scheduled

Leaders are learners. Each youth ministry volunteer is asked to continue growing together with God and our team on behalf of our teenagers and church. We will take this opportunity to hear a presentation on an important topic facing teenagers and have an un-hurried conversation — which is just not possible during the normal course of our activities. Thank you, leaders, for your faithfulness!

STORIES @ THE EDGE WITH NEXT STEPS

Service starts at 6:00 pm on June 16, July 7, 21, and August 4 in Fellowship Hall. Because this is a community created event, we could use help cooking, setting up, creating crafts, or a host of other things that must happen for us to gather as a community. We look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions or would like to find out how you can volunteer, please contact Rev. Tiffany Keith at tiffanyk@fumc-cs.org.
