Here in the Youth Department we are extremely excited for an exciting year of awesome Divisional and Territorial youth events and experiences. Youth Ministry Trainings, a Young Adult Retreat, Prayer & Praise Nights, Youth Councils, I’ll Fight Day and more are all part of this year’s calendar.
To get the word out, and to get everyone pumped, we’re busy creating a very cool 2015-2016 Metro Youth Dates to Remember poster (coming soon!). With this poster, you will be able to have all of the dates and locations for various events at your fingertips, and will be proud to hang this up at home or school.
There are a variety of ways this information can be easily accessed:
- We will be distributing the posters at the first Prayer & Praise Night of the school year (@ Aurora Corps on September 18), and will continue to make them available throughout the year at P&PN’s, Youth Councils and other events.
- Get on Facebook and search for “Metro Youth Network.”
- Download the one up above.
- Lotus Notes: Go to the Divisional Bulletin Board and look under “Divisional Events.”
