This week we have a fun activity planned for youth group, French Fry Tasting!! Meet at Clearlake at 12:30. We will take a trip to about 5 local restaurants and taste and rate their french fries. Who has the best fries in the Salem Keizer area? Find out on Sunday. Youth group will pay for the fries, youth should bring money to buy any other food or drink. We will return to Clearlake at 2pm.  

Each week we start our youth group off with a delicious lunch provided by members of our Open Door churches. If you would like to help out by providing lunch please follow the link and sign up. We appreciate your support! 

As many of you know, our older youth will be spending a week in mission in Costa Rica. The youth council met this week to determine a summer mission trip location for our middle school youth or anyone who can't go on the Costa Rica trip. Our youth have been invited to attend a mission week called City Camp. City Camp is a collaboration of 7 churches in the Portland area who do a week long service trip together. (3 of the churches will be attending winter camp with us next month). The week of City Camp is August 5-9 in Portland, OR. 
This will be a great opportunity for us to live out our faith by serving in a variety of ways, including serving a meal at a soup kitchen, working at the Oregon Food Bank and working in a community garden. During the week we will stay at First United Methodist Church in Portland (which has Air Conditioning!) and on Thursday we will participate in Nightstrike, a ministry to the homeless under the Burnside bridge. If you are a middle schooler please click the link below and participate in our survey as we try to determine our mission week. Thanks Jeff
