The Junior Youth Group is pleased to introduce ourselves as the CHAOS Kids
(Christ Honored And Others Served)!
Our group invites all kiddos under the age of 12 and their parents to participate as we learn what God is calling our youth to do within our church. Most of our events occur within the church so no long treks to take part in our activities. We welcome parents to all of our gatherings and leave it up to them to decide if their child is mature enough to be left alone for the event.
For more information about CHAOS Kids, please contact us. If you have any questions or suggestions for the CHAOS Kids, please direct your inquiry toward Patti, Luanne, or Melissa.
2018 SCHEDULE - for the first half of the year

Crafts for the CHAOS Kids down in the clubhouse.
The kids and their parents are invited to create a special craft and enjoy spending time with our group. We will have a “Kids Favorite Meal” lunch during this time; so kiddos, help Mom or Dad create YOUR favorite dish and we will see what kind of fun meal we all put together!
This will also be the end of the can drive for North Kent Connect and we will decide how and when we can get the most kids to help deliver to North Kent Connect.

The CHAOS Kids have decorated a new barrel to collect items for North Kent Connect and invite the congregation to donate what they can. The North Kent Connect website has a list of suggested items they can use most. Please help the kids help others in our community.
In December the kiddos and their friends put together 25 baskets for the shut-in members of our congregations and others who have trouble leaving their houses, and they had a fantastic time while watching some of the classic Christmas favorites. Pizza and cookies were also involved in their fun!
They received a thank you note that we would like to pass along to thank everyone who donated items for these baskets!
To : Courtland Oakfield United Methodist Church:
Thank you to your young people for the wonderful Christmas packages. I am 87 years old and used to work with young people in Washington State and Guam and Michigan and really enjoyed it. My husband was released from the U.S. Air Force after 20 years and was in Vietnam and Korea.
God Bless you,
Mrs. Ralph (Edla) Rieckman (CDLA) xxxooo
