What is District Youth Council?
The Youth Council meets on a monthly basis (with the exception of December) to plan the district youth events.
Not only do the youth plan the events, they are the leadership at the events.  
We are looking forward to some new events.

Learn about the Youth Retreat Mission Project:

We would like to help families by providing a small “party in a box” for a child in need.  The idea is to decorate and fill shoe boxes or gift bags with everything needed for a small birthday party. Each box goes to a different child. If you are making a lot of boxes, please make them for different ages!

Pick an age (or ages), and choose either boy(s) or girl(s) to send your box to.

Find a large shoe box (or use a party bag) in your house, and buy the things needed for a party. Include all of the following:   

  • a box of cake mix
  • a can of frosting
  • birthday candles (no matches please!)
  • a wall decoration (like streamers, or a happy birthday banner)
  • a children’s book for the aged child you are making the box for
  • another ($15-$20) gift for that child .
  • If you like, you can also include a goody bag filled with small surprises, or other small gifts
