High School Mission Trip to South Carolina!
July 7-13, 2019
This summer we are going to Cherry Grove, South Carolina for our High School mission trip! Our youth council chose this location because they wanted to go somewhere to help people who have been affected by Hurricane Florence. We will be building a wheelchair ramp for a family in need. We will meet at the church Sunday morning at 7:30am on July 7th and we will be back late afternoon on Saturday, July 13th.
 
We usually do our High School mission trips through an organization called Team Effort, but this year we are trying something new and planning it all ourselves! We will stay in a house close to the beach. We hope to have a fun and productive week! The trip will cost $250 and students will need at least $150 of spending money. For more information about the trip, please click the link below for the brochure!
 
If you are in need of a scholarship application, please email Sara at sholley@fcumc.org
 
 
 
(if you pay online, please remember to still fill out a permission slip!)

Then, we will all walk over to The Vine together for the service. We will all sit together during the service and make sure everyone knows everything they need to know before the service begins! We are so excited for our confirmands! We will also make sure to get a group picture right after the service! See you Sunday!

Our last FEED of the school year will be on April 28, 2019! This will be our last meeting until the fall. We would love for everyone who has participated in FEED to come!

Our plan is to go to Coolidge Park to play Frisbee and other games like that so make sure to bring a change of clothes with you to church! We will probably eat somewhere on Frazier Ave. We will meet in the student center right after the service and we will be back at the church by 3 pm!
