2015 orange nation Young adult servant event
july 16-19, 2015 @ New Orleans, LA
Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Orange Nation Young Adult Servant Event. We are excited to be in New Orleans July 16-19, 2015! The theme this year is Hope In Christ based on Hebrews 6:19: “We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner places behind the curtain…” The weekend focuses on the following things:
God’s Word: Through Bible Study, devotions and worship we will be reminded that by ourselves we are hurtful, prideful and full of sin. But in Jesus we receive grace and a new life.
Service: Through Christ’s Love, and not of ourselves, we will serve the New Orleans community. We will be working with Camp Restore to do clean up and repair projects.
Build Young Adult Community: We are children of God and will gather in fellowship and worship. This event focuses on building each other up as much as serving the community. We will enjoy some down time at Camp Restore including a worship service, a night to get dressed up and go out on the
town, and the opportunity to stay after the event to enjoy New Orleans with your new friends.
Registration starts at $140 for early registration if you post mark by January 31.
The early date helps in two ways: 1. It allows us to begin to plan in detail for the event. 2. It helps lower the travel cost for participants. (See overview for other Registration info).
You are welcome to register individually or as a group. Adults over 30 are welcome but we ask that you bring at least one person under the age of 30 with you. Exceptions will be made for young adults under 18 on a case by case basis (Contact Brandon for more info).
Review the “Service” and “Fellowship” pages for more information about who we will be serving and what we will be doing in the evenings. There is also a “What to Bring List”.
We know that an event like this is a financial commitment, so we have provided some guidelines and ideas to help raise funds for the event. We would also love to hear some of your unique fundraising ideas.
We also ask that you keep the 2015 Orange Nation Servant Event in your prayers. Pray that we point to Jesus in all we do. Pray for the planners as they nail down the details of the weekend. Pray for those we serve, that they too can celebrate the Good News of our Lord. Pray for all the participants, that they travel safe and learn who God is while serving.
We look forward to seeing you in July! Contact us with any questions.
Blessings as we put our Hope in Christ!
