Capital District Youth Summit 2015

Saturday: January 10, 2015: 10am, @ Centenary UMC in Smithfield

We hope that this meaningful opportunity for your youth and leaders to experience “conexion” within the Capital District and build unifying relationships with youth groups in our area. This year’s Summit offers worship, fellowship, and break-out sessions that will provide opportunities for leaders and youth to share ideas and paths that have shaped their ministries. Honored guests include Capital District Superintendent John Strother, All God’s Children UMC pastor and founder of Place of Possibilities Laura Early, and Bishop Hope Morgan Ward.

We will provide refreshments, but encourage you to bring a snack or dessert to share with others. Maybe something that your youth group shares with one another at your table.

Please bring a diverse representation of your youth group. An example would be: 2 adult leaders, 1 middle school student, 1 underclassman, and 1 upperclassman.

There is also a $10 registration fee per youth group that can be paid at the time of the event. Registration expires January 7th.

Please contact Clay Parker at 919-440-6369 or Jason Darden at 919-961-2880 with any questions.
