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, Band of Survivors 2017 and more are all part of this year’s calendar.
To get the word out, and to get everyone pumped, we’ve created a very cool 2016-2017 Metro Youth Dates to Remember poster. 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 (@ the Harbor Light Corps on September 16), and will continue to make them available throughout the year at P&PN’s, Youth Councils and other events.
- Join our Metro Youth Network Facebook group
- Download the one up above.
- Lotus Notes: Go to the Divisional Bulletin Board and look under “Divisional Events.”
- We’ll also be mailing a few out to each Corps.
