Connectional Prayer Ministry – Prayer Call (Week #1)
Ministers’ And Laymen’s Council Workshop

View the Youth of the Month & Youth Leader of the Month for December from the Episcopal Districts!


Do you have an exceptional young person who is dedicated to their church, school and community? Does your youth leader go beyond the call of duty for the young people? We have created a space to honor them.

The Connectional Youth Ministry is pleased to announce CYM Salutes, a program distinguishing outstanding individuals in the area of Youth Ministry within the CME Church who are making a difference. The Youth of the Month and Youth Leader of the Month program will recognize individuals who demonstrate exemplary characteristics both in church and within the community.


To be nominated as Youth of the Month or Youth Leader of the Month, the candidate must be an active member of the CME Church. The candidate cannot receive the award more than once between November 2021 – May 2022.


Candidates can be nominated by any member, youth or adults, of the CME Church each month. Each person can only nominate one (1) youth (12-17) and one (1) youth leader per month. Share a brief description of how this nominee exemplifies excellent character and helps young people become better leaders, citizens, and/or members in the CME church. Nomination can be submitted from the 1st – 15th of each month on our website: www.cmecym/cymsalutes .


The selected nominees will be posted on www.cmecym/cymsalutes for the voting period of the 20th – 25th of each month. At the end of the month, the Youth Vice President’s Council will announce one (1) youth and one (1) youth leader from each Episcopal District as the winner. The selected youth and youth leader’s name, picture, and a brief statement will be showcased on our website and social media accounts. CYM will also present Youth of the Month and Youth Leader of the Month certificates. In June, we will vote for a Youth of the Year and Youth Leader of the Year.

#BlackChurches4Broadband Encourages Families to Sign up for Emergency Broadband (Internet) Benefit

Our hero, the late Congressman John Lewis, said that internet access is “the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.” A high-speed home broadband (internet) connection is vital for full enfranchisement in today’s world. It opens the door to educational and economic opportunities, connects family and church communities, allows access to remote health care services, and empowers greater civic engagement and activism.

Congress recently created an Emergency Broadband Benefit giving eligible families up to $50 per month to pay for home broadband service. You may be eligible for the Emergency Broadband Benefit if your household has experienced a sudden loss of income during the pandemic, or is currently receiving federal benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, Lifeline, Pell Grants, or free and reduced-price school lunches.

Visit blackchurches4broadband.org to learn more about eligibility and how to sign up.
