UMYF:    United Methodist Youth Fellowship (all 6th thru 12th graders) are meeting each Sunday evening 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. down stairs at the church in our UMYF youth room, for supper, study and shenanigans.   We have a project to do in still fixing up our UMYF space but thanks to decorating skills of Amber Grace, Mallie and Sophia we are well on our way to making the area our own!   We need everybody’s input to talk, plan and study God’s word and His will for our group.  We are finishing up “Coffee with Jesus” lessons.  We have a full schedule of events and projects and Mission Possible opportunities coming up in the next few months.
