Elizabeth Memorial United Methodist Church
Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors
Our Sunday evening youth fellowship group is open to all 6th-12th grade students. They are currently on summer break. Check back for Fall 2022 plans soon!
October 2020: The youth participated in the "virtual" 2020 Hike for Hunger to benefit Heart+Hand Ministries. They walked several laps around the church parking lot and raised over $200.
The youth hosted a Socially Distant Visit with Santa event in December 2020. The children had fun giving Santa their wish lists and having their photos taken with jolly old elf.
Our youth joined the Children's Choir to present the Christmas program GOD'S GIFT TO US during the Dec. 15, 2019 worship service.
The youth delivered the birthday kits they collected to Sojourner's Shelter on Nov. 23. Thanks to the generosity of the congregation they were able to provide 29 cake kits (pan, mix, icing, candles, plates, napkins, decorations, card, etc.), 3 cookie cake kits, 3 cake mix with icing sets, and extra pans to the shelter so that folks with birthdays can celebrate their special day.
Our youth hosted a drive-thru collections event in August 2020. Persons wishing to donate food items for Covenant House, cookies for Manna Meal, or school supplies for PAAC who cannot drop off during the limited hours the church is open took advantage of this event.
The youth served the afternoon meal at Manna Meal in November 2019 as part of their focus on outreach.
Jan 2020: The youth solved "Poe's Lament" at a local escape room with time to spare. Escape room outings is just one of the fun activities our youth enjoy every few weeks.
