SUMYT Youth Retreat
March 14, 2014 - March 16, 2014
Hear a story: tell a story…
Welcome to SUMYT 2014! A time for youth to gather and explore ways to live out our faith and challenge ourselves to see God in new ways and new places. We’ll worship, sing, dance, play on the rope sing, walk on the beach, reunite with old friends and make some new ones! There will be plenty of food, fellowship and FUN, not to mention some friendly competition in our 2nd Annual Amazing Race! All youth in grades 6 through 12 are invited to SUMYT regardless of their faith tradition, so bring your friends! Come spend the weekend with youth from all over Washington state; Bellingham to Olympia to Pasco to Seattle! Maybe even from another church inYOUR town!
Reverend Jim Head-Corliss of Gig Harbor United Methodist Church will share his talent for teaching and story-telling as we explore our theme; “Hear a story: tell a story”. We’ll learn how each of our own unique experiences combine with those of others around us to form a wonderful, larger story.
SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE! If you need assistance covering the cost of the retreat, call Paul Bland 425-753-7491 or Laura Martin 206-909-2742
To help us follow Safe Church Policy, each church should provide at least one (1) adult of the same gender for every six (6) youth attending SUMYT. All adults must have a national background check on file that has been run within the last two (2) years. If this will be a challenge for your church, please contact Laura Martin 206-909-2742 or Paul Bland 425-753-7491. If you are the only youth from your church attending SUMYT, please call Laura Martin 206-909-2742 or Paul Bland 425-753-7491 so we can pair you up with another group!
Registrations received by February 1st include a free t-shirt!
