Fall Youth & Faith Formation Events

Picture3In many of our congregations this Sunday and the next will be “Fall Kickoff,” “Rally Day,” “Welcome Home Sunday,” “Christian Education Sunday” or some other catchy way to let folks know if they were away this summer – it’s now time to return or pay attention. In the area of Faith Formation and Youth Ministry for the conference we are shifting focus from summer camp season to Fall Youth Events, Fourth Thursdays, and special opportunities such as the Parables event sponsored by the UCC national setting and Wayzata Community Church. We will also be launching two grant opportunities in October in November for church micro-grants and mission trip grants and encouraging churches to become a 2014-15 Faith Forming Five Congregation.

Youth Opportunities:

Fall Middle School CYE (October 3-5)
High School CYE (October 17-19)

Leader Opportunities:

Fourth Thursdays (September, October, January-April)
Parables Event (October 26)

Please let us know if you have questions on any of these opportunities and hope you have a great September kickoff!
