We had such an awesome time at NEXUS a couple weekends ago! We spent the weekend at Ocoee Ridge Camp with 10 other churches from the district! We spent the weekend in worship, hearing from our speaker, Kevin Alton, and participating in fun activities like paintball and high ropes! There were over 200 students in attendance! We had a great time and can’t wait for next year! 
 
Check out our photos from the weekend if you want to see a small glimpse into all the fun we had!

FEED Small Group - High School Only
November 17, 2019
This is our third FEED of the school year! We hope many of our high school students will be able to attend!
 
All high school students who are interested in participating in FEED will meet after church and we will all (girls and guys) go downtown somewhere for lunch. Then we will come back to the church and have small group. Last month the students who were present decided on some topics to discuss so we will have a discussion around one of those topics, but if you have any ideas for other topics we hope you will share those with us as well!
 
We will meet in the student center after church. We will be finished by 3:00 pm.
 
MARK YOUR CALENDARS: The FEED dates for the school year are 11/17, 1/5, 2/16, 3/29, 4/19, 5/17

Parent Council Meeting - November 13, 2019

Parent Council Meeting
Wednesday, November 13th
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 next Parent Council meeting will be this Wednesday, November 13th! We will discuss Romania 2020, rescheduled Xmas party, etc. All parents of youth are welcome to attend and bring their ideas! We will meet from 6pm-7pm in the youth dining room in the student center. Hope you can join us!

Our annual Scenic South District Fall Retreat is THIS WEEKEND! This year the retreat will be at Ocoee Ridge Camp! The cost will be $140 and it will include all your meals, a T-shirt, and fun activities like paintball, high ropes, low ropes, and climbing wall! This year's theme is "Throwback"! 
 
We will meet in the Oak Street parking lot at 4:00pm. Please make sure you have all your forms, including the district waiver that requires notary, our youth group's permission slip, and either your payment of $140 or your scholarship application. If you're not sure what you still need to turn in or have any questions about the weekend please contact Sara (sholley@fcumc.org). We hope to be back at the church around noon on Sunday. 
 
Youth should come on Friday knowing whether they want to participate in paintball or the high ropes course!

Romania Mission Trip 2020
July 2020
Our Youth Council has decided that they want to go back to Romania this summer. This means we need to get our plane tickets ASAP. We need to know FOR SURE if you are coming to Romania with us by Wednesday, November 13th. The cost of the trip will depend on how much we have to spend on plane tickets, but the sooner we get the tickets the cheaper they will be. However, we know that each student will not have to pay more than $1,000. This trip will take place in July - the exact dates will be announced in next week's email (we are waiting on one of the Romanian pastors to give us the specific dates).
 
To let us know if you would like to come you can text or email Troy (troy@fcumc.org) or Sara (sholley@fcumc.org). Or tell us in person!

Community Fall Festival!
Wednesday, October 23rd
Our Annual Community Fall Festival is in just a few weeks! This is by far our biggest event of the year! We expect 800 or more people to attend. There will be giant inflatables, a 9 hole putt-putt golf course, a free meal, trunk or treating, face painting, balloon animals, and more!
 
A great time is sure to be had by all, BUT we also need volunteers! The main point of this festival is to reach people in the community, so we need our church members to help us out! If you are interested in volunteering (supervising an inflatable, handing out popcorn, serving food, etc.) please let us know and we can give you more information!
 
This will be Wednesday, October 23rd from 5pm to 8pm. This will replace our normal Wednesday night program.
