Youth Gathering

Upcoming Youth Gatherings


2020 Event Information:

Now more than ever, the words that Paul wrote to the churches in Phil. 1:3-11 ring true for us in the Nebraska District!

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first daky until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.”

After prayerful consideration of options and possible configurations for gatherings, and by consulting with the planning committees, the DCE group, the survey data (77% Jr. High and 65% Sr. High said no to gathering), and discussion with other districts we have decided to cancel the November Youth Gatherings for both Middle School and High School.  The purpose of our gatherings is to gather for faith formation, food, fun, and fellowship.

Due to the COVID chaos and challenges, the attendance numbers are too low to be good fiscal stewards and host the events.  Also, in an abundance of caution, recognizing the challenges to host at a site with enough space for appropriate social distancing and not mixing community groups during fellowship works counter to our intended purpose of gathering as a district.

The Middle School Gathering is cancelled and the theme cycle will be adjusted as follows:  Grow 2021, Show 2022, Know 2023.

The High School Youth Gathering is canceled.  We encourage groups to gather locally and begin work locally on the National Youth Gathering with the resources already published.

In addition we encourage you to utilize the following resources:

Consider using the group function in CPH Faith Courses locally.  There are leaders guides, participant guides, and video driven content.

Download Youth Ministry has lots of resources and activities for your group.

For more resources, consider joining the mailing list for our Sharing His Heart newsletter.  An issue is sent around the first day of each month from September  through May each year.  Content is connected to youth, children’s and family ministry.  To join the mailing list, add your email by clicking on this link.

We look forward to the Senior High NYG in Houston in 2022 and the District Senior High Gathering in November of 2023!
