2016 Youth Winter Retreat

The theme and message for the 2016 Youth Winter Retreat weekend was Armor of God. Thirty youth and chaperons attended the weekend events, and various members of our congregation joined in the evening worship on Friday and Saturday. Lynne Henneghan of Next Step Ministries and our Elkhorn Hills Youth Praise Team led the worship. This is the fourth year that Lynne has attended our Youth Winter Retreat, and it was a reunion of friendship, fun, and a spirit-filled time.

Camp Fontanelle

The September Mission of the Month is Camp Fontanelle, “A Place To Grow With God In Any Season.” Camp Fontanelle is a facility of the Great Plains Conference of the United Methodist Church camping ministries, which provides opportunities for intentional Christian Community through hosting retreats, reunions, community events, group activities, and summer camps for all ages.

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.
