Children, Youth & Family Collaborative (CYFC)

Children, Youth & Family Collaborative
by Rev. Larry Young

Most of the First UMC family is aware of the Children, Youth & Family Collaborative, the ministry to foster-care youth led by our covenant missionary, Lydia Templeton. Out of their belief in what CYFC is doing, four women in the S.F. Bay area have volunteered to do a walk-a-thon in support of CYFC across the Oakland Bay Bridge on May 22. They invite us to join them in support of their walk by our donations to CYFC. The easiest way to participate is to go to the CYFC website,, and click on the Walk to Fund button. Here’s an opportunity to give added support to one of our mission causes and make a difference in the lives of some youth who most need it!
