The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still as real and sharp as they were six months ago. Because of this, we will conduct our United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) gatherings digitally for the foreseeable future, and reschedule "regular" fall events for the spring (pending COVID reduction).
When we gather on Zoom for UMYF, expect to be welcomed into the meeting by sponsors and other Youth as a countdown gives everyone time to log in. This might include strange trivia, goofy games, or Small Group challenges.
We'll watch a pre-recorded devotion (that may include contests, tasks, or dialogue in the chat), pray, sing (still pending), and learn. We'll then shift Zoom into Small Group breakouts for discussion and sharing, New & Good, and prayer.
You can expect games to be peppered in with the experience, and varying medias to keep us engaged.
Meeting IDs and passwords for Zoom will be emailed to Parents and sent through our text subscription services weekly.
