The Youth are planning some exciting activities next year. We will be traveling to Jackson in early spring to attend "The Gathering," a youth conference hosted by the youth council of our MS Conference of the UMC. This will be a great weekend of worship and fellowship with other youth groups from around the State. Also, next summer, we will be attending "Bigstuf" in Panama City, Florida in June. We will have a great week of worship and fun. You can help us with funding for these and other activities by picking up an envelope in the Narthex. The envelopes are numbered 1-100. We ask that your donation be the amount of the number on your envelope. Please make checks payable to FUMCLB and include Youth Special Fund on the memo line. Thank you for your continued support. To date, we have raised $2,444 toward our trips.
