Jr. high dYg 2018
Welcome to the 2018 Junior High District Youth Gathering (DYG) – “Follow” March 16-18th, 2018!
This year we are at a new location! The Jr High DYG 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 may 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.
As we have done last couple years, we will provide breakout sessions along with time for your group to meet together to process their learning or walk through additional teaching you provide. Additional free time is planned that will provide your group with a time to debrief the day or handle confirmation related work.
As our committee continues to plan and carry out preparations for the gathering, we continue to pray for each of you, your ministry, and your youth. We pray for the Lord's infinite wisdom as we strive to provide a Junior High DYG that will bring adults and Junior High students to a deeper connection with our Savior.
If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in March!
