Youth Events – July

July 4th we will have a Freedom Fest. There will be a limited availability of 20. I will be creating a sign up genius for this as well. I encourage you to come out for food, fun on the water, and fireworks for youth of all ages!
July 8th-12th is the week of VBS and I know several youth always look forward to helping volunteer. I’m sure you could count this toward service hours, so contact Molly (molly@stjconnect.org) to let her know you and your student want to help!
July 15th-21st is our HS Mission trip to Houston. Registration for this is closed. For those of you who have signed up, We will have a meeting Thursday, June 28th at 7 pm to finish up paper work and meet everyone going on the trip with St. James.
Questions?  Contact Abby at 252-752-6154 or Abby@stjconnect.org
For these trips and days, be sure to stay on top of sign up genius and our social media pages.

Camp Connect

Camp Connect allows middle school students (rising 6th-9th grades) to be catalysts as we come together to serve our community as Jesus would have served. Students spend their time during the day in Pitt County, NC, serving through various projects, assisting with local vacation Bible schools, or using their dramatic and musical gifts to engage the community and build relationships.

Day projects are designed to connect students to the heart of God and allow each student to grow into what He’s calling them to be. This camp is about transformation and restoration, not only in the lives of students but also in the lives of the people they serve.

For the fifth year, camp will be housed on the ECU campus.  This year, once again, our home base will be in Jones Hall – across the street from Tyler.  Daytime activities will include participation in either project sites, outreach activities including dance and drama, or VBS opportunities.

Evenings will be spent on East Carolina’s campus experiencing community as the body of Christ, debriefing work experiences, eating, worshiping and hanging out with other middle school-age kids and team leaders.

Camp culminates on Thursday, June 21st with a worship and commissioning service at St. James United Methodist Church.
Contact Abby Gillette at the church office or abby@stjconnect.org  to register or for more information.
