Faith Xtreme youth event is changing to FAITH SERVICE XTREME! The dates are September 13-15, 2019 at Point Pleasant United Methodist Church, 3329 Point Pleasant Road, Elk Grove CA 95757. Point Pleasant UMC is welcoming 6th-12th grade youth with Radical Hospitality.
Faith Service Xtreme is a spiritual formation event among youth and adult mentors that is SERVICE ORIENTED. It is a weekend that will consist of multimedia worship and music, inspiring speakers, sports, games and work service opportunity. The work service opportunity is a partnership and collaboration with the Fijian congregation that has moved to Wesley UMC, 5010 15th Avenue, Sacramento CA 95820.
The 6th - 12th youth will be engaged in a full day service on Saturday through a collective effort of painting, nailing, repairing as guided by experienced adults. The youth and young adults of Wesley UMC are joining in this service and labor of love. It is not required for the youth to have an experience of doing church property repair for they will be guided by experienced adults.
Faith Service Xtreme has been inspired by the words of Jesus in the Beatitudes, Matthew 5:9, "“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family." (The Message translation by Eugene Peterson)
The 2019 FAITH SERVICE XTREME theme is, "BLESSED TO SERVE: WE'RE NEIGHBORS"
Invitation: John Wesley experienced a heart-warming assurance of redemption being embraced by the love of God. Our young people are invited to live a life of commitment to Jesus and then be inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
