This past weekend 16 congregations sent middle school youth and leaders to Pilgrim Point Camp for the Middle School Conference Youth Event with a theme of “Extravagant Welcome.” The 87 participants were led in song and programs by Bryan Sirchio, singer / songwriter and author of The 6 Marks of Progressive Christian Worship Music. The energy was high as you might imagine, the message that every young person was welcomed and loved by God was boldly proclaimed and the hospitality through site staff and volunteers met with extremely high praise. Many thanks to all the leaders, volunteers and site staff who helped make the weekend so successful!
Next weekend, October 17-19, high school youth from around the conference will have their fall youth event at Pilgrim Point Camp with this coming Monday as the last day to register. Our keynoter is Hilary Flynn, High School Ministries director at Wayzata Community Church, leading us around the topic of “Courageous Conversations.” We will be dealing with how to truly listen to one another and discuss topics that at times can be both difficult and at the same time helpful to address. We will also spend time playing, singing and building great friendships across the congregations.
Registration for the High School Youth Event closes in 5 days!
Registration: $85 youth, $60 adult
Deadline for all registrations is October 13
