No "Triple P" this Sunday
Sunday, September 15th
Unfortunately, we have to cancel this Sunday's "Triple P" Event. If we are able to find a time to reschedule, we will, but we are unsure at this time of when that would be. Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you at our next event or on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings!

Free Meals Campaign
An anonymous donor has volunteered to match all donations given in the month of September up to $2,250! That means if you give to our campaign during September your money will be doubled!!! PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!
Each year we ask families of the church to donate money towards our Sunday & Wednesday meals. This is a lot easier than asking parents to sign up to bring breakfasts and dinners like we used to and cheaper as well. 
 
If 36 of our youth's families donate $150 then we will have enough money to pay for ALL of our meals for the entire school year. Give the full amount or give part of the amount monthly or in whatever way you would like. Some choose to give $50 per month for 3 months or $25 a month for six months. Any amount is helpful. 
 
So far we have received $800. To give, simply write a check, write "Free Meals Campaign" or "Youth Meals" in the memo line and drop it in the offering plate on Sunday or send it with your child on Wednesday night.

Special "Triple P" Event - Sir Goony's!
Sunday, September 15th
On Sunday, September 15th, we will have a special Sunday "Triple P" Event. We are going to meet in the student center after church and go somewhere for lunch before heading to Sir Goony's! There are a lot of options for what youth can do. Mini Golf is $8 for one course and $10 for two. Youth can also pay $20 to have access to 3 attractions and 4 game room tokens. We suggest youth bring $30 to $35 for lunch and Sir Goony's (depending on what they are interested in doing). We will be back at the church by 4pm!

First Parent Council Meeting - September 11, 2019

Parent Council Meeting
September 11, 2019
Most changes that take place in the student ministry are a result of either the Youth Council or the Parent Council. The Youth Council is more focused on events while the Parent Council focuses on the ministry nuts and bolts (organization, education, procedures, training and structure). 
 
It is the venue in which parents and volunteers who genuinely care about the ministry get to talk about concerns and posit solutions. The creativity and dedication of previous parent councils have played a major role in the stability, effectiveness, and growth of our student ministry. If you really want to make a difference then this is a great place to plug in! 
 
Our First Parent Council Meeting will be Wednesday, September 11th! All parents of youth are welcome to attend and bring their ideas! We will meet from 6pm-7pm in the Confirmation classroom in the student center. Hope you can join us!

New Texting Plan! - Remind App

New Texting Plan!
The Remind App
We are in the process of switching to a new texting plan! Unfortunately, the prices went significantly up for our last service so we are having to switch to a new program! We hope this will be easier and more convenient for everyone once we get everyone switched over!
 
There are a couple of ways you can receive our messages. You can text "@fcumcyouth" to 81010 OR you can download "Remind" in the app store and join our "class" by entering to class code "@fcumcyouth". Many of you may already have the app remind for school purposes so we hope this will be easy for you all! If you don't want to download the app you will still receive all messages through your texts, but if you prefer to have your messages come through the app you can download it.
 
We will have our old texting plan until August 16th so please make sure to join our new plan by then so you don't miss out on any of our text updates!
