Friday, 14th March 2014 (Stay awake)

On the first day of an exciting weekend, the CYM members turned up in great numbers to have fun, rejoice in God and to STAY AWAKE. And what a success it was! With games such as musical chairs (which later became “grab a chair and run away with it’) and attempting to shout orders at a blindfolded person across a room-filled with people simultaneously shouting out orders to other blind folded people – there was no time to even catch a nap! Day 1 of the youth weekend….AWESOME!

 

Saturday, 15th March 2014 (Trip around the world)

After a short nap after the stay awake, it was time to travel around the world! A food-filled hall, decorated with flags and youth members dressed up in traditional clothing representing 5 different countries namely India (Akni), South Africa (Boerewors) Greece (Dessert), Italy (Mac and Cheese) and France (Salad). The food smelt divine and tasted even better! A final profit of R3736.00 was made.  Day 2 of the youth weekend…. SUCCESSFUL!

 

Sunday, 16th March 2014 (Youth Prayer Day Service)

After a fun-filled and sleepless weekend, the final stop was insight. A day of prayer and thanks was set aside for the youth in order to say thank you to the Lord for sparing us, being with us and carrying us through difficult times and also ensuring that we are a UNITED in our fight against sin. After the wonderful praise and worship a few prayers by the Sunday school, CYM, brigade and also dance performed by the spiritual dance group. A powerful sermon was brought by Henry Payne concerning praises to God and how we praise God. This sermon was indeed a perfect finish to an incredible weekend. Final day of the youth weekend….A BLESSING!

Fundraising
The biggest Fundraising drive during 2014 will be the Raffle which is currently being distributed.
Each Confirmed Member of the congregation will be supplied with a booklet containing 5 (five) tickets.
Instead of members having to contribute and amount of R200,00 per person towards Fundraising this year, they can sell 4 (four) of the 5 (five) tickets per book.  For every 4 (four) tickets sold, per book, the seller receives the 5th ticket as a free entry into the competition.

To stand an even greater chance of winning, members are allowed to sell more than one booklet.  Members who usually contribute more than R200 to Fundraising per year will be given more booklets to cover the amount they’ll be contributing this year.

The main prizes ranges from 42 inch TV, computer tablet, decoder & dish plus 1 (one) installation and an android cellular phone.

The Raffle draw will take on 8 November 2014 during which smaller prizes will also be drawn.
