CROPWALK – HIGH POINT
THIS WEEK we will be participating in the High Point Crop Walk. The idea is that we ask sponsors to give us money, then we walk a loop (there are 1-mile and 3-mile loops) in High Point to raise awareness for World Hunger and we take the money that we raise and turn it in so that starving people all over the world can be helped.
We will meet at Memorial UMC at 3 PM and return to the church by 6 PM, the walk is actually in High Point, but we want to travel together!!!
Memorial Youth’s CROPWALK page can be found HERE! You can register for the walk here and then begin asking for those donations. Even if you aren’t able to raise any money, come on out and walk with us anyway, it is lots of fun and a good cause to bring awareness to!
It might be warm, so you may not want to wear your long-sleeved Youth Shirt, but I think I might wear mine!!! (HINT, HINT) SEE YOU THERE!
SMALL GROUPS ARE STARTING UP!!!
So, for the last few years we have had steady growth in our “Youth Small Group” ministry. Some of you may not be aware, but we have a few small groups that meet on Wednesdays at 6 PM (they usually end around 7 PM) at the church. These small groups are designed to be different than our Sunday Night Programs. Instead of wild activities or discussing issues, Small Groups meet simply to share about how your week is going and to have a few people pray for you and your life. You will in turn get to pray for others and hear about their week as well. Small Groups are made up of 8 -12 people and you can become a part of one at anytime.
WHAT DO WE DO?
When you meet you are asked to share 3 questions:
What was the HIGH POINT of your week?
What was the LOW POINT of your week?
Where did you see GOD during the week?
HOW DO I JOIN A SMALL GROUP?
Its pretty simple, but it is very meaningful to those who attend and you have an invitation to join a small group as well. The Fall Small Groups begin on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 at 6 PM. Contact Rodney and he will help you find the perfect fit for you in a small group! Hope to see you there!
(If I have left anyone’s name off, please forgive me and send me an email so that I can update my records! Thanks!)
