Help us Reach for the Stars!

The real STARS in Genesee County are our middle school and high school-aged youth who have endured MUCH during the past year - and continue to endure even today!

Young Life Genesee County HAS NOT STOPPED reaching out to those youth and more! We have gone deeper in our friendships with kids and continue to build healthy, faith-based connections with those who are experiencing depression, loneliness, fear and anxiety more than ever before.

Due to COVID restrictions forbidding our in-person banquet for the second year in a row, we have put on our CREATIVE thinking caps and have come up with an evening of FUN for all to enjoy!

Please help us REACH FOR THE STARS May 11 with a virtual “telethon” from 7 to 8:30pm. We are drawing inspiration from the days of the Jerry Lewis Telethon -- but this time will provide funding for one of Genesee County’s oldest and longest-running charitable organizations. Stephanie K Confer, former DJ of WWCK 105.5, will serve as host to skits, songs and testimonies from kids who have been impacted by our efforts. The whole evening is designed for our friends, families, alumni, donors and potential donors to get a TASTE of what Young Life is doing in Genesee County!

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year with a goal of raising $125,000 to continue our mission and to grow our influence in the lives of youth. Please prayerfully consider making a gift TODAY by clicking below OR JOIN IN THE FUN and call in your financial contribution to our phone bank of Stars during the live telethon that evening!

We are excited for EVERYONE to see THE STARS of Young Life Genesee County.

Be a STAR and join us for our 2021 Young Life Telethon, our largest fundraiser of the year! Watch the STARS come out May 11, 7-8:30pm, LIVE on Facebook and YouTube! Help us to keep our mission GOING AND GROWING as we reach every kid in Genesee County with the unconditional love of Jesus. Make a gift...

We began a 66-Day Prayer Challenge Sept 21 through Thanksgiving based on Matthew 9:38: “Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” In our prayers every day, at 9:38am or pm, we prayed for at least 20 new leaders, knowing that the harvest fields were ripe in Genesee County! All staff, committee and volunteer leaders prayed - and prayed. As of Thanksgiving day, we have EXACTLY 20 NEW LEADERS!
EXACTLY AS WE PRAYED!
We are so blessed with the expansion to the Young Life family! A heartfelt welcome to all! We've been praying for you!
If you are interested in serving on Committee or as a volunteer leader, please Sue Frownfelter at 810.577.2020.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED TO OUR 50FOR50k CAMPAIGN!
As of this afternoon, we are so blessed to announced that more than 50 people donated $26,091 both online and via mail!

While we did not reach our goal of $50,000 to cover our banquet shortfall, we truly are so grateful. I am reminded of Act 11:29, when the disciples experienced a worldwide famine (similar to a pandemic?) Their lives undoubtedly were turned upside down as they wondered about about their next meal, worried about their family and friends. The Message says, "So the disciples decided that each of them would send whatever they could to their fellow Christians in Judea to help out."

While we are not exactly experiencing a famine, we believe that our Young Life family and friends gave "whatever they could" to help us continue introducing Genesee County youth to Jesus Christ and to be reconciled with their Creator. We are rejoicing today for the generosity of so many.

Please join our 5 for 50 Campaign, Dec 1-5!

Young Life Genesee County this week celebrates Madelynn Hyten. Madelynn is a sophomore at Lake Fenton High School and started coming to Young Life when she was a freshman.

Madelynn began attending LFHS as a new student. She believes Jesus led her to Young Life and volunteer leader Mikala Hunsinger. Young Life helped her feel like she belonged somewhere while also providing the feeling of true family. Being a new student, she loved how welcomed she felt especially after she met Mikala at one of her first clubs.

Madelynn and Mikala instantly had a bond. Madelynn says Mikala really shows her what it’s like to follow Jesus - that Jesus has changed her life, and she’d never have it any other way.

Mikala and Madelynn, even during the pandemic, are STILL talking, laughing, and walking together towards Jesus. Madelynn says whenever something difficult comes up in her life, Mikala is always there to help her focus on Christ.

Young Life truly has been influential for Madelynn and others, she added. She says all the Young Life leaders set a great example for everyone on how to follow Jesus.

We are so grateful for Madelynn and who she is! We thank God for bringing her to Lake Fenton Young Life!

Young Life Genesee County celebrates Riley Johnston this week! Riley is a junior at Grand Blanc High School and has been a part of Young Life since she was a freshman. Riley met Volunteer Leader Aftyn Williams at Young Life's Timber Wolf Lake two summers ago. Since then, she has become one of our most devoted kids and considers Young Life as the tool to help her friends know Jesus Christ!

About a week ago, Riley felt unworthy, and was struggling in her relationship with Christ. She decided to post something about it on social media. In her post she was transparent about the fact that she had been struggling with her faith, and she felt it was time to get better acquainted with Jesus. She told her friends that she was laying her problems, worries, cares at His feet.

To her amazement, one of her friends reached out in response and started asking questions about Christ and God. The friend asked why would God let things like cancer take over a family when they were church going people. As Riley started fielding his questions, she also realized she might not have all the answers. Riley Face-Timed her leaders Aftyn and Grand Blanc staff Robert PJ Leyder to discuss what the best approach to speak truth into her friend’s life. Her friend had all these questions and she realized she didn’t have all the answers. Aftyn and Rob were so happy to provide as many answers as they could.

“It was powerful,” Rob said, “and it made us think of the worship song, Waymaker. One verse says, ‘Even when I don’t see it, You’re working.' Riley realized in that moment that even if we personally don’t feel like we’re connected to the Lord, or that we are the best 'image' of a Christian that week, the Lord can still work through us! She realized our lives should reflect Christ, the choices we make, the way we live our lives. She started to believe that the Lord could use her to bring her friends closer to Jesus.”

Riley’s story shows how the Holy Spirit is working within our Young Life kids. We cannot wait to continue to hear what else the Lord has in store for her and the rest of Young Life Genesee County this school year. ❤
