H i Friends!!
How are you doing?
I hope this week started off well and you are conquering everything you need to do!
I am emailing you with a list of new Support Resources for Parents, a new reading plan for the youth, and a fun game to play with your family and friends! 
In this email is also the meetings and links for this week and a new, ridiculous devo from Denise.
I pray things are going well for you. I am praying for all of your homes to be filled with peace in the middle of the crisis. I pray God holds you all during this time.
I am holding you all in prayer.
Please let me know if there's something specific I can pray for!
Love in Christ, Denise

Spiritual Practice Ideas
While we are apart, God is as close as ever to all of us.I encourage us all to take time each day to focus on God in our own way.

Here are some ideas:
Memorize Scripture together!
Choose a few places in your home to post the verse for this week:
"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples" John 13:35
See who can memorize it by the end of the week.

On to our Next Devo!
YUMC Youth: I invite you to join me in a 8 day reading plan. It starts on THURSDAY! Go to this link, sign up for the reading plan. Then add me as a friend!! (Denise Harris)
FAITH Reading Plan:
Have you ever stopped to think about faith? And what is faith anyway? Does faith actually make a difference to our lives? The Bible has a lot to say about faith. Through exploring the story of Jairus and the sick woman in Mark 5:21-43, we will discover how Jesus responded to their faith, how powerful and loving He is, and investigate how faith in Jesus can impact our lives today.

Support Resources

Let's Have Fun!
Here are two ideas to help you have fun with the people in your home or friends you connect with online!
Skribbl.io Free and available in your web browser, Skribbl.io will have you sketching like a maniac in no time. When you go to the site, choose to create a private room. After watching a short ad, you’ll be able to send a link to friends so they can join. You’ll each be assigned a silly character name, then Skribbl.io will give you prompts for various objects to draw. If you don’t want to take your chance with the game’s random word engine — which you may want to avoid if you’re playing with especially young children — you can input your own words and set it so the game will exclusively use those.

What ideas do you have? Share them so we can tell others!
