Summer Youth Fellowship (PYF) and Ministry

We had a great & busy Summer! Thank you to everyone who donated supplies and helped support PYF & Summer ministries in any way. 

On June 25-30, We had a group of youth and our youth leader, Lori Harnish, participating at Cumberland Presbyterian Youth Conference (CPYC) at Bethel University in McKenzie, TN. Youth Participants are Cumberland Presbyterian from all over the world who have completed the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th grades.  FPC Alabaster has several youth which will be serving on Teams at CPYC—Anna Y. is serving on the 2016-2017 YMPC (Youth Ministry Planning Council)  The council comprises 17 members and is an agency of the United Board for Christian Discipleship of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.     Katy B. served on the Communications Team, and Josh H. served on the Drama Team.

On July 9-14 the 2017 Summer Mission Trip Group  went to the Colonial CPC in Memphis to volunteer and staff a week of their CITI Summer Camp . They spent the week having  VBS and making meals for the children at Citi Camp .  We also had volunteers that went to help with repair that were needed on the buildings  that the programs and ministries of CitiCamp meet in. CITI Summer Camp meets June-August from 7:30am to 5:30pm , Monday thru Friday and  is an extension of Colonial CPC’s ministry Children in the Inn which has been at Colonial for several years.  In 2013, they  began offering different churches across the country an opportunity to come in and serve at Citi Summer Camp for a week. This gives the children a great deal of variety and fun and helps them to be able to provide camp each week  at an affordable price for parents in need  while city schools are out for the summer.  

Thanks for a great Summer! August 27th starts the new C.Ed year and a new calendar of events for the youth / PYF! Will be posting the events soon.
