2019 DYG Registration

The Jr High DYG (District Youth Gathering) will be at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Educational Center again this year. 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 “Chaos” based on Mark 15:32 “But we had to celebrate and be glad because this brother of yours was dead an is alive again; he was lost and is found.” We will be exploring the parable of the Prodigal son from Luke 15:11-32 from the different perspectives of the son that leaves, the son that stays, and the father. As we look through these different perspectives, we will see the chaos in dissatisfaction, being lost, jealousy, and the amazing chaos and blessing of forgiveness.
During the Jr. High DYG, our youth will explore how they can relate to the chaotic story of the prodigal son. Over the course of the weekend we will talk in depth about the chaos we often feel in our own lives, and the feelings of dissatisfaction, being lost, jealousy, and how God’s forgiveness covers the chaos of all the emotions of our lives.  Friends are welcome to attend!
