Being a teen today is very challenging. You may be facing added responsibilities at home, tougher grading policies in school, and your friends may be changing. Grappling with real life issues requires truth, and all signs point to God. Our goal is to help you build spiritual foundations you can rely on for a lifetime and beyond. This is accomplished through sharing your faith, igniting a generation to serve Jesus Christ, growing in the Word and your relationship with Christ, Networking with other teenagers, and Serving God and His church.

Youth Impact is going strong!

30 Hour Famine

WHO: Youth Impact High School Students and some
WHAT: For 30 hours, we’ll skip meals to raise funds that will
help feed hungry children around the world.

WHEN: February 21 – 22, 2020
WHERE: The last 24 of the 30 hours will take place at FUMC


WHY: Every 5 seconds, a child under 5 dies — and nearly
half those deaths are from hunger-related causes.
That’s why we’re taking action now!

How can you help?
1. Pray. Ask for God’s grace over our event and our
fundraising, and that we grow deeper in our love for Him while
helping change hungry kids’ lives.
2. Give. Every $40 we raise helps feed and care for a child for
one month. You can make checks out to World Vision OR to
FUMC (please note World Vision on the memo line) and put in
the collection basket when it comes around. You can also drop
your donation off in the Church Office or give to any 30 Hour
Famine Participant. Our goal is to feed 50 kids for one month
