Grace and peace. I continue to thank you for all the work you are doing to engage youth in your community. I greatly appreciate all that you are doing.
The district is collecting information of the youth leaders, paid and volunteer, in the district. If you have yet to fill out this form, please take a minute to fill it out so that we have the latest contact information. Pastors, if you have a youth ministry at your church, please pass this link along to the leader(s). https://forms.gle/aCYiuEhx4JqcoC1SA
The youth sub-districts have been created and an email sent out to the youth leaders we have on file and the Pastor’s for those we did not have a youth leader listed. The goal is to have each sub-district represented, youth and mentors, on the District Youth Leadership team. If you are willing to help with district or sub-district youth, fill out the form at the link above.
I am working on creating the form for the youth to fill out if they would like to be a part of the District Youth Leadership team. So, stay tuned.
Is your youth group doing something exciting, working in the community, ongoing mission, then the district wants to hear about it. I am looking for stories of youth in action to highlight it in the newsletter. Send me an email or give me a call.
The next conference event is Breakaway (June 21-26). There is still time to register.
Go to https://nccumc.org/youth/events/breakaway/ to register.
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.
