Youth Christmas Theater – Mission Trip Benefit

Christmas Madness at the Mall
written by Moka Johns & Lucie Roy

Join the dysfunctional Moses family as they separately scramble to the Nazareth Mall to purchase the gifts they’ve forgotten to buy. Along the way they meet three quirky mall cops, a trio of rather wise store clerks, and other characters to bring the previously hectic Christmas Eve to a humorous and happy close, as the family learns that presents aren’t the main focus of Christmas after all.

4:00 pm Performance
~ 4:45 pm Live Nativity & Caroling Outdoors
~ 5:00 pm Reception in Social Hall

Souper Euchre Bowl – Mission Trip Benefit
Saturday, February 3, 2018, FUMC Downtown Social Hall

Come to the church (downtown) for an evening of intergenerational fun hosted by our youth. We have a soup supper and then youth (grades 7 and up) and adults play in our 4th annual euchre tournament. Players will mix and mingle by changing tables after every game (not recommended for beginners). Youth (ages 12 & up) help with hosting the event (including paying euchre!). Non-euchre playing youth can help host the children’s room, where elementary-age kids can play games during the youth/adult tournament. Prizes and refreshments included. Elementary-age children* are invited to our kid game room, also hosted by youth with adult supervision. Entry fees for adults and children benefit the youth mission trip scholarship fund. *Advance registration required for children’s area so we can plan adequate supervision.
