"Do all that you have in mind, I am with you HEART AND SOUL” -1 Samuel 14:7

Dear Church Family,
 
We have done an excellent job of staying safe and following the protocols for The Zone. Thank you to the youth and to the volunteers who have helped us stay engaged and have a great time doing so!

After further consideration, and with the smaller groups, we will be going back to the Jr. High and Sr. High groups, and adding a few minutes back into our night as well. So our schedule now will be on Wednesday nights at 6:00-7:30pm, this will allow the adults and small group leaders to be there at 5:30 to help set up, give more time for the check in process, small groups and we will be out a bit earlier too! I thank you for your patience through this process, but know it is to ensure our safety and enjoyment!

Protocol:

If you are SICK or are having any SYMPTOMS related to ANY illness, please stay home.

2. When you are within the church walls, masks are REQUIRED..

3. Please be sure to CHECK-IN with a volunteer to maintain contact tracing protocols.
    Temperatures will be monitored as well. If you present feverish symptoms, you will be
    asked to leave.

4. Please maintain PHYSICAL DISTANCING requirements, 6 feet and Jesus.

5. ENTER through the alleyway. EXIT by the stairs to Boulder.

6. Stay within the space that is open for youth activities.

7. Continue to RESPECT People, Place, Process, and Presence!
 
If a positive case of COVID-19 occurs, please inform Zach ASAP. We will contact all students/volunteers, and will close down The Zone for at least 14 days.

If we can get through all these procedures and respect the process, we will continue to have a great time and we will get through this TOGETHER!


EVERY WEDNESDAY IN "ROCKTOBER"!
In The Zone, 6:00 pm - 7:30pm

Wednesdays in October, we will be listening to songs and looking at Scripture, tackling subjects like: Trusting How God Made Us, Doing Difficult Things, Embracing the Unknown, and Taking Risks for Others!

SNACK TIME
Although we are not providing a meal, we still have a few wrapped snacks and water bottles on hand for the night. If you would like to help donate some individually wrapped snacks (such as bars, chips, fruit snacks, cookies, fruit), or water bottles, please email us at [email protected] or just drop them off on Wednesday Nights! Thank you so much!

OCTOBER 7
This week, we'll introduce students to some people in Scripture who experienced jealousy, in order to invite students to the peace and joy in how God made them.

OCTOBER 14
This week, we'll look at the story of Elijah, who needed to experience both God's power and gentleness in order to do what God had called him to do.

OCTOBER 21
This week, we'll look at the stories of Naomi and Ruth and remind students that God knows our future, even when things seem uncertain.

OCTOBER 28
To close this series, we'll look at the story of Esther, who chose to risk her life for others because she knew and understood God's heart. 


RANCH ALONE TIME
Second Saturday of Each Month!
OCTOBER 10, NOVEMBER 14, DECEMBER 12

Open to all! Youth and Families Welcome!

A free day at The Ranch! Come for a little bit or stay the whole day.

FALL RETREAT
IT'S A GO!
 
Our Fall Retreat this year is Friday, November 13 through Sunday, November 15 at John Wesley Ranch, with quite a few changes:

There will be a set limit on how many can come, 10 rooms in the bunkhouse, will be used for the lodging.

The same protocols which we have on Wednesday nights (see above) will be used at The Ranch.

When indoors we will be wearing masks.

No singing in the Chapel.

Food will be plated and snacks will not be buffet style.

BUUUUTTTT it will still be The Ranch…in Fall… and we can still have a great time! With appropriate games, we can still enjoy the outdoors, and we will be together. I believe that this process is possible and the students have shown they are willing to be responsible and act accordingly.

Early Bird cost is $25 per person (beginning October 30, the cost will increase to $50 per person), so, register early! Registration and Payment can now be done all in one spot! Go to https://fumccs.shelbynextchms.com/forms#!/builder/e90859b4-449b-4f5d-8d34-3701810f7ed0
 
If you have any questions feel free to email me ([email protected]). I will have more details in the coming weeks.

                                                    Continental style breakfast and hanging out.

Join us for a bite to eat, game to play, catching up with friends, making new ones, or an early morning nap. Cereal, snacks, juice, even waffles. Our gracious hosts Lynda and Heather continue to love us, by feeding our stomachs. Life is already hard; so don’t make it harder, by skipping breakfast.

Bible 101

Who wrote it? How many books? Where do I start? The Bible can be a daunting book, but we should become more aware to God’s Word. So let’s break it down together!
