Middle School Youth Gathering 2019
November 9-10, Kearney
Preparations for the 2019 Nebraska District Middle School Gathering are being made. The planning committee has been at
work to make this another meaningful gathering. The theme for our gathering, scheduled for November 9-10 at Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center in Kearney, NE, is kNOw. Middle School youth are learning a lot about themselves and want to kNOw who they are. This gathering is a chance to celebrate the love we receive through the waters of Baptism. Students will be reminded that they are KNOWN by God through their baptism, saved by Jesus and NO one else, and shown what that means for them NOW.
Please note that you will register for the gathering and then make separate arrangements for housing on the attached Housing Information page. Hotel housing costs are not included in the registration fee. Each group will pay housing fees directly to the hotel at check in. This allows your group the flexibility of booking the number and type of rooms that fit your group best. Please follow the instructions on the attached Housing Information page.
All Gathering participants must register in Family Groups. A Family Group consists of at least 1 adult for every 7 youth. Adult leaders must be 21 years of age, and groups with both male and female participants are strongly encouraged to have both a male and a female adult leader.
Please use the checklist below to ensure that your registration will be processed quickly and accurately. If you need
additional copies of the Registration Form, please duplicate page 1 so we have the congregational information as a reference, adding the next Family Group in alphabetical sequence. Print and complete an Emergency Information/Release Form for each adult AND youth participant.
Please be mindful of the registration deadline. If your registration is postmarked by September 30, the fee is $105 per person. Between October 1 & October 14, registration is $115. After October 14, your registration is considered late and will be $140 per person. Full payment of gathering registration fees and completed emergency forms are required or your registration will be returned. DO NOT SEND FORMS WITHOUT PAYMENT. Please make only one payment per group. (NOTE: Online registration is NOT available for this event.)
