Middle School Youth Gathering—Embassy Suites, LaVista

Middle school youth and their leaders are invited to come learn from our theme which is centered on the word SHOW.   Based on 2 Corinthians 3:3-6, youth will spend the weekend learning that we show that we are ‘a letter from Christ’ in what we sow, how we show love, and so we are ‘prepared to give a response’ in our daily lives.

Registration includes Saturday dinner & Sunday breakfast, snacks, speakers, talent show, and games!

Participants will join together as a large group for the mass events to sing, pray, and hear the keynote speaker talk about the Gathering theme.  Breakouts and Bible studies will be a time for smaller groups to meet and dive deeper into the theme and discuss what it means to ShOw.

And there will be time to play!  Take part in the talent show or just watch and then choose from the fun activities during fellowship time.  You’re sure to meet new friends and grow in your relationship with Jesus!
