The Jr High DYG (District Youth Gathering) is an annual retreat for our 7 & 8th grade students and will be at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Educational Center. This center has it all: worship space, activity space, great hiking and camp activities, and sleeping accommodations.
The theme for this year’s Jr. High Gathering is “Follow” based on three lessons from the books of Daniel and Esther. Three speakers will walk us through three narratives, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from Daniel 3, Daniel and the Lion’s Den from Daniel 6, and Esther’s story from Esther 1-8. All three narratives will center on the verse Daniel 3:29b “There is no other god who is able to rescue in this way.”
Our Jr. High kids are being led in so many different directions in this day and age, by peers, our culture, even family, they are being told to “follow” so many different things, people and beliefs. This year our three speakers will help our kids discern who they are following, and who they are allowing themselves to be led by, and will learn why they should be following the One True God rather than things that don’t last. Friends are welcome to attend!
Forms are due by February 2, 2018 for the Early Bird Registration of $100.
