Youth Group This Week

February Schedule

February is the busiest month for our Open Door Youth Ministry, full of wonderful opportunities and events. This month we will meet at Morningside UMC on Feb 2 and 9th. On Sunday we will learn how to do erasure poetry. 12:30-2

We have chosen our mission trip dates and locations for this summer. July 19-24 for youth 13 and older are invited to go to DOOR Denver for an inner city mission experience. The second option for a mission trip will be Aug 9-13 in Eugene, OR. with the L.A.S.T. program. We will have sign up forms at youth group this week and in future Friday emails. if you want to learn more about DOOR, for info about the LAST program

Winter camp
For those that signed up for winter camp who haven't filled out a health form, you can find one here or ask Jeff for one at youth group. We have 23 youth and 4 adults signed up. Look for more information about what to pack and when we are leaving on the 15th and if you haven't paid your $50 please make the check to "Open Door Youth" and return it to Jeff at your earliest convenience.

Summer Camp

In addition to the mission trip, winter camp, and the auction, it is also time to start thinking about summer camp. Click on the link below to find out about some of the great camps this summer.

Open Door Churches offers scholarship assistance for active youth going to summer camp who need it. See our scholarship policy below.

Our Annual Youth Auction is coming Feb 22

Mark your calendars for Feb 22, 2020 at 5 P.M. The auction is a great community event and the main way that we fund our youth program. Mission trips, camp scholarships, winter camp, the barn dance are all made possible because of the money raised at the auction. Stay tuned for ways to help. This year youth who are helping do not need to buy tickets. For other family members and friends see the link below to buy tickets now. We are especially looking for auction items. If you have anything you can donate let Jeff know. Donations and services given by youth are especially well received. Tickets will be one sale at Morningside, Clearlake, and First UMC this week after the worship services.
