November 19 and 20 – As most of you know, the senior high have been doing the Freedom curriculum from the Highlands. Freedom is a curriculum that is designed for senior high and up. It is a thirteen week curriculum that we will finish on November 17. November 19 and 20 is the Freedom retreat at the Highlands; this is not a spend the night retreat. A sample schedule is:
Friday, November 19 – Leave church around 5:30. Doors open at 6:00. Sessions from 7:00 to 10:00. Back to church around 10:30.
Saturday, November 20 – Leave church around 7:45. Doors open at 8:00. Sessions start at 9:00 and end around 3:30. Back to church around 4:00. Lunch is provided.
The retreat is an important part of the freedom curriculum. The Holy Spirit is active during the sessions. Prayer is stressed. More information will come out about this later.
December 27 – 30 – Senior High Ski trip to WINTERPLACE, WV. The cost of Snowshoe has risen dramatically. The cost of Snowshoe for each child would have been around $950 (the rooms were $840 a night for four). So we are now going to WINTERPLACE. More information will be sent out soon. We will leave the morning of December 27, ski December 28 and 29, and come back home December 30. This trip is only for senior high youth that attend CUMC youth or church. We will not take youth that aren’t members of our church or members of our youth group.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
Youth Mission Trip
Faith, Hope, Love, facts and feelings was the theme for this years youth mission trip. Facts form the foundation, faith rests on facts and feelings come last.
We had an amazing time in Ashville NC. We got to work with a women’s shelter, soup kitchens and an Animal Haven. We also had time for lots of games, a trip to the local Ashville Tourist baseball game and ended it with a day at Dollywood. The last night was dedicated to prayer for each other and recognizing our seniors. Thank you to our amazing volunteers:
Ali Brown, Joey Woller, Joe Sanders, Carter Gannaway, Ella Sanders, Carly Pritchard, Katelyn Riant, Morgan Wall and Sydney Stone.
We are so thankful to have such amazing spirit filled youth!!
Strong possibility of a senior high ski trip December 27-30 (for senior high that are members of Central Methodist or Central youth). This will be based on many factors (youth budget after mission trip, based on how many can attend, etc.). Many times cheerleaders, basketball players, and others are not able to attend.
The juniors and seniors are leading the children’s retreat again this year. Please reserve Monday, February 21 for a day retreat.
Fall Festival is Wednesday, October 27.
