Free Meals Campaign

Free Meals Campaign
It's that time of year again
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. 
 
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.

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!

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
 
Please turn in your $50 deposit as soon as possible to reserve your spot!
 
We will have a parent's meeting about the trip on Sunday, June 30th immediately after the services in the youth lounge.
 
 
 
(if you pay online, please remember to still fill out a permission slip!)
