Youth Group Events This Week & Beyond
This Sunday, February 11th:
You’ll be driving to the Winchester Light Rail Station and then taking Light Rail to Downtown San Jose, where you will be going to see the IMAX movie, Amazon. Bring a bag lunch to eat in before the show (there’s a park right across from the theater), $10 to help offset the cost of the transportation and the show. Depending on what train you can catch after the show, you should be back at church between 2:30-3:00pm. Meet Renee and Geoff by the parking lot right after church.
This group will be driving up to San Francisco. The plan is to park near AT&T Park and take the Trolley near the foot of Coit Tower and then walk up to the tower. If it’s a clear day we’ll take the elevator up to the top to check out the views. Bring a snack/water for the car (we’ll picnic in the city), $12 (at least $5 of it in one dollar bills) to offset transportation cost, some lunch (Subway) and elevator cost. We’ll aim to get back to church between 4-5pm. Meet Melinda by the parking lot right after church. Oh, and wear comfortable shoes.
The Del Mar High School musical, “Bells Are Ringing” is coming up. We’ll try to go see it.
More information about that will also be coming soon.

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!
View/download the January-July 2018 Meeting/Activity Schedule.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

Sierra Service Project Trip 2016
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.
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.)
