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: Youth@campbellunited.org

Sierra Service Project Trip 2016
High School Youth from Campbell UMC went on a mission trip with Sierra Service Project (SSP) from
July 3rd to July 9th.
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 2015 were for community organizations.
For more information regarding Sierra Service Project, see their webpage.
On July 3, 2016 a former CUMC Youth, Jordan Aspiras, home from her first year away at college, gave the sermon at our 10am Worship Service –
listen to her inspiring message: “The Lord Your God Is With You”
(The Youth lead at least one service every year.)
