Grace and peace. I want to thank you for all the work you are doing to engage youth in your community. I greatly appreciate all that you are doing.
Thank you to those who have followed the link below and filled out the form. We want to keep you informed of what is happening in the district, but the list that we have for youth leaders, paid and volunteer, is not complete. We are missing about 1/3 of the churches in the district. I understand that not every church has a youth ministry but if you do, even if you have received an email from me, please follow the link below and input your information. We would like to have the most up-to-date contact information for each of you. Pastors, if you have a youth ministry at your church, please pass this link along to the leader(s). https://forms.gle/aCYiuEhx4JqcoC1SA
I have completed work on creating district sub-groups, so watch your emails (the pastor will receive this email if we have no youth contact listed). I am still working one the form for youth to fill out for the District Youth Leadership team. If you are willing to help with district youth, fill out the form at the link above.
I am still looking for stories of youth in action. If your youth group has a project that they have been doing, I would love to highlight it in the newsletter. Send me an email or give me a call.
The dates for conference events have been posted on the conference youth website https://nccumc.org/youth/events/. Also the district youth have a FaceBook page (https://www.facebook.com/FairwayDistrictYouthNCCUMC), an Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/fairwaydistrictyouth/), and a website (https://fairwaydistrictnc.org/youth/). I invite you to follow and like the social media pages and bookmark the website.
If you have any questions, concerns, comments, or ideas you can send me, Justin Wells, an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 910-591-8156.
My Time At Kaleidoscope – By Jefferson
My time at Kaleidoscope was a very fun one. We had a fun car ride there and it seemed great. I didn’t want to go at first . I was nervous and I thought it was boring and a waste of time but soon I found out that it was interesting. The first day we did a prayer and then we went to our cabins me and my cabin played a game I don’t know what the other cabins where doing But it was fun. The next day we had breakfast and did camp activities and then had lunch. After that we had free time and I played gaga ball with that free time. Then came the last day we got to do free time and make s’mores . It was really fun then on the car ride back we all had a big sugar crash but it was a great experience with friends and God.
