This week in the JYM...

11/10/22 - 11/17/22

We have exciting news for upcoming trips in the Joint Youth Ministry!

First: Save the date high school students! We have secured our location for our summer mission trip.

We will be serving in the Navajo Nation in Tsaile, Arizona with the Sierra Service Project. We will be driving there and back together. The dates are June 18th - 25th.

Sign Ups will come soon, but for now please pencil in the date and keep it in mind as you make your summer schedules. This is one of the best things we do together as a youth group.

(& High School Remember! Our fall high school mission trip to San Francisco is next weekend, and today is the final day to snag a spot! sign up here)

Secondly - We have heard from Sugar Pine Christian Camp that winter camp is confirmed for Friday Feb 24th - Sun Feb 26th. The cost is estimated around $240 for the weekend. We know we want to do a winter activity and many students who loved summer camp at Sugar Pine are excited to attend winter camp there. We also know that last year our students had a fun time on our JYM Snow play trip we took.

We want to hear interest levels from families before committing to Sugar Pine. Please vote in our survey below. This is not a commitment to attend, but it gives us a general idea to help with planning.

Can't wait to see you!

In Christ,

Kat Kraynick-Baker

Sr. High San Francisco Mission Trip - Final day to sign up!

RSVP for your spot today!

November 19th - 20th - 

San Francisco High School Mission Trip

Who: Current 9th-12th graders

What: An overnight mission trip experience to San Francisco to learn about the history of the city, work with various non profits and bond as a youth group. 

When: Saturday morning, November 19th at 6:30am meeting at WGUMC through Sunday November 20th afternoon at 3pm. 

Where: We will be sleeping at the Waller Center- A United Methodist church converted to a retreat center with beds, bathrooms, kitchen, group meeting rooms. It is located near Golden Gate Park off Haight. We will be passing out care packets in the tenderloin, working in the SF/Marin food bank and volunteering at Glide and hopefully another agency, attending worship at Glide and having a group lunch and speaker at Delancey street

Why: Traveling together helps us grow closes and build friendships. Volunteering at many of these places helps expand our worldview and give back.

Cost: Cost includes our rental vans, retreat center fee and all meals. $175. If you need a scholarship, please indicate that in the notes.

If you need to be dropped off later in the day Saturday we can work that out or if you'd like to get picked up earlier by a parent because of a scheduling conflict we can also make that happen with advance notice.

All students on this trip must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. It is a requirement of each non profit we are working at in SF as well as the places we will dine at. Please send an email or text with a picture of your vaccination card
