Midwinter Youth Retreat Registration Open

Filed under: Uncategorized — patricknorton75 @ 10:47 am

Now’s the time to visit our Youth page to register (or download promotion and registration materials) for the 2015 Midwinter Youth Retreat for WV Disciples 6th–12th grades (and post-high participants). We hope that many will be with us as we grow closer to God and to one another in a safe, loving environment – Feb. 6-8 at Cedar Lakes Conference Center.

“What’s Your Story” is the theme, and Rev. Kenneth Hardway, retreat leader, and Rev. Kevin Snow – both Associate Regional Ministers for Youth and Young Adults in the region – look forward to helping the group in sharing their stories with one another and growing together in faith in the process.

An important addition to this year’s retreat will be engaging in mission. Youth are asked to begin collecting items now for the Gift of Years project at the Beckley First Christian Church, which will enhance end of life care at their local hospice house by providing a devotional “care package.” Items needed are:

  • Stationary and envelopes
  •  Devotional material (all faith traditions)
  •  CD players with speakers (not walk-man style)
  •  Music CDs or music downloads
  •  Money to purchase more of these

We hope you’ll lend a hand in preparing for this good work, and share the request list with your local congregation. They will be brought to the event and dedicated as they are lovingly passed on for this great project in Beckley.

Please help us spread the word! Visit our website now, and share this with your friends on Facebook/Twitter.
