Youth Mission Challenge

In April, 2015, the EHUMC youth challenged the congregation to a food and hygiene product drive for the Heartland Hope Mission. This VERY successful mission challenge was won by the youth in a close margin. Since everyone was a winner, the Youth will be hosting an all-congregation BBQ on July 25th after our Saturday evening worship service.

YES Meal — A Success!

Elkhorn Hills is a great place that cares for the youth in our community. Our first meal to the youth served by Youth Emergency Services (YES) was a success! A big “Thank You” to everyone who donated cash to purchase the chicken and to those who donated drinks, paper products and all of the other food items. Thank you for helping to share the love of Jesus to these youth.
