YOUTH SERVICE FUND:
SILENT AUCTION BASKET DONATIONS NEEDED

The Youth Service Fund (YSF) supports youth and youth ministries in their endeavors to live and grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. The primary fundraiser for this fund is the Young People's Ministry Council's annual silent auction. YPMC is collecting donations of items for the auction, such as themed gift baskets (one example would be to fill a basket with items unique to the district in which your church is located), handcrafted items, and gift certificates.

Basket donations may be brought to the conference office from May 13-17 or to the YPMC Booth at the Community Arts Center on Wednesday, May 29.

If you are interested in providing a donation or for more information, connect with Pastor Carrie Granche at cgranche@susumc.org 

COLLECTING ITEMS FOR MISSION CENTRAL CARE KITS

This year we are collecting items for Care Kits for Mission Central.  You are invited as a Church to collect items and have your pastor or lay delegate bring them to Annual Conference.  There will be a place in the Grand Ballroom at the Genetti to drop off donations as well as assemble kits from the collected items. 

Each Supervisory Area is asked to provide items used to build the Care Kits - LEARN MORE
