Youth Group Events This Week & Beyond
Middle School – This group will be going to Oka Pond to pick up trash. Our church has adopted this area and we go out to pick up trash twice a year. We will leave at 11:30am and return around 1:00pm. Please bring a bag lunch, water, gloves, and wear or bring clothes that can get dirty. We will have a little picnic at the pond before we start cleaning up. Maybe with all the rain this past year there might be some water in the ponds again. Meet at the parking lot.
High School – Please arrive at church at 9:30am to collect Recycling for SSP. We will be collecting at the end of the Fellowship Hall. Bring gloves if you have them. After church we will be going to the recycling center with what we have collected. We will probably need at least one more driver to help with this. Also bring a bag lunch and water.
If you are in high school and need service hours you may go to Oka Pond. Write the leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to make sure that we have enough youth helping with the recycling.
We will need permission slips for this offsite event. If you have turned in your medical form we have your permission slip on file. They are needed for friends too, if you bring others along.
Next Meetup is TBD.
We had a great time bowling at our last meetup

United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) –
a Group for 6th – 12th graders
Meeting on Sundays after coffee/fellowship time, this program offers an incredible chance for youth in grades 6-12 to practice leadership, engage in community service, get to know each other, and have a great time while they are doing it. It’s a wonderful way and place to meet new people, make lifetime friends, and contribute to their extended community!

UMYF Meetups are usually held Sundays from 11:30am – 1pm on the youth (3rd) floor of the AMY Building, focusing around fellowship, study, community service projects, church involvement and fun activities off-campus as well. Often, meetings are “Brown-bag”, and members bring their lunch to eat while meeting and planning activities. Contact the coordinators: email@example.com
We need all new forms filled out for 2017-2018.
Forms may be found and downloaded here:
There are also hard copies in the youth room of the AMY bldg. NOTE that the permission slip for offsite events is part of the medical form. If you want to go on the outing you need to have already filed or bring along the Medical/Permission form. As long as you have a medical form on file you do not need to fill out a permission slip for every outing. The permission slip covers outings through August 31, 2018. We will always include permission slips with the emails sent out to UMYF in case you would like to bring a friend.
Sierra Service Project Trip 2017
This will be Sierra Service Project‘s second year ever serving in the state of Washington. Campbell UMC Youth will go to work with the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, just outside of the city of Spokane from July 9th-15th. Home to about 2,700 tribal members, this area offers summertime temperatures in the low to mid 80’s. We expect a mix of carpentry, painting and minor home repair work.
For the most part, Sierra Service Project (SSP) teams work on homes in the communities they serve. Occasionally, teams work on churches, community buildings, and schools in the hosting communities. In addition, they sometimes participate in other types of community service activities like community gardens when there is a need and the work is appropriate for youth work teams.
Check out photos of their trip while atWellpinit, WA for SSP.

High School Youth from Campbell UMC went on a mission trip with Sierra Service Project (SSP) from

There they joined other youth in repairing homes, serving the community, strengthening their faith and building relationships.
For the most part, Sierra Service Project (SSP) teams work on homes in the communities they serve. Occasionally, teams work on churches, community buildings, and schools in the hosting communities. In addition, they sometimes participate in other types of community service activities like community gardens when there is a need and the work is appropriate for youth work teams. About one half of the projects in Smith River in 2016 were for community organizations.
