ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL MINISTRY UPDATE

On Wednesday, August 15, 2018, a small team of 10 volunteers from FUMC, St. Stephen's UMC, and Louise UMC began its 3rd year of ministry with the students of the Alternative School of the Yazoo City Public School District.  

Our team has joined with Rev. Eddie Spencer, Associate Pastor of Galloway UMC in Jackson and Pastor of Mt. Salem UMC in Byram to provide mentoring for these students since the 2016-17 school year.  Last year, we shared Rev Spencer's book, "Putting Out The FIRE" on anger management with about 25 students who were assigned to the Alternative School for various degrees of misconduct.  This past year, our team of volunteers probably learned as much as we taught!  We found that JESUS is still very much in the Public Schools of Yazoo as hard as our government tries to keep Him out.  Relationships have been established and the Love of Christ has been shared each time we meet!  Ask any of last years students what "AGAPE"  means and they will say, "The Unconditional Love of God!"

We meet as a small group in our church library on Monday nights to "share our faith," dialogue about what we learned the last meeting, and pray for the coming meeting.  We then go to the school on Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. and follow the Holy Spirit.

As we head into the 2018-19 school year, we ask for prayers for this team, these students, and the teachers and administration involved, especially Coach Peters, Principle and Dr. Georgia Ingram, Interim Superintendent.  If you would like to donate to help with expenses, please designate your gift to the Great Commission Fund- Alternative School Ministry at FUMC.

Anger management ministries are needed in all of ourschools. If you are interested in forming another team and starting a ministry at McCoy Elementary or Woolfolk Middle School, please call the church office.

Jesus needs YOU in Yazoo!

 

I would like to say thank you to Jana and Andy Bardwell for hosting the Youth on Sunday night after the scavenger hunt. Thanks also to everyone who helped prepare the food and drinks for the youth.

A big THANK YOU to Julie and De Paul for hosting the Back-to-School Party for Grades 1-6 this past Sunday afternoon. Also, thank you to those parents who sent snacks and came to chaperone. Your help was greatly appreciated.  - Tera Smith
