Friends Youth United 2020 Update
Dear Youth Pastor/Leader,
 
I wanted to give you a final update regarding camp for 2020. Although the Governor of Ohio has cleared the way for overnight resident camps to open, we believe that the current restrictions, which include capacity limits, will not allow us to move forward with the kind of camp experience we want to create for our churches. As a result, Friends Youth United is canceled for this summer 2020.
 
I pray that your students and churches continue to see great growth through the summer as you plan, prepare, and pray towards the new school year. We cannot wait to come together again in July 2021. Please look for more information on that later this year and if you have any further questions, comments, and/or concerns, please let me know.
 
God Bless,
Youth Pastor, Damascus Friends Church

Quote for the Week

"Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight." - Romans 12:9-16 (ESV)
