Youth Annual Conference 2021
REGISTER BY May 27 to get your Party Box!
Who: You and your friends in grades 6-12.
When: Saturday, June 12, 1:00 - 3:00 pm
What: Affectionately referred to as YAC, this large gathering (several hundred!) of youth is designed by youth to reach out to youth who desire to grow in their relationship with God and their youth group while understanding what it means to be a leader in our connectional United Methodist movement.
Experienced live, this interactive event will include the worship band, goofy fun stuff, time with Shane Claiborne, discussion, live chat, breakouts, polls, a prayer room, and more.
Who is Shane? "Shane is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author. Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded The Simple Way in Philadelphia. He heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living 'as if Jesus meant the things he said'. Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to jail advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war. Now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty and help stop gun violence."
Why: It's not only fun to be together, it's also a time for personal growth and reflection, a time to learn, a time for worship.
How: Outdoors at the church. We'll participate through a big ole TV, but the experience is best if you also have your own device - phone, tablet, laptop, etc - for interacting and polling.
YAC Party Boxes: If you register by 5/27, you'll get a t-shirt, lanyard, and other goodies!
What to bring: Your digital device (phone, tablet, etc) and a chair if you prefer comfy seating.
Cost: $10. Please let Curt know if you need assistance - it is always available.
