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). Also in the email will be a link to 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.
This weekend is Kaleidoscope. I ask that you say a prayer for the youth, the adult leaders, the camp staff, and the parents. May it be a God filled weekend.
If you have any questions, concerns, comments, or ideas you can send me, Justin Wells, an email at email@example.com or call me at 910-591-8156.
