UP!WORD 2013 will explore what it means to be called a Child of God through music, worship, workshops, and friendships. It’s shaping up to be another exciting weekend for teens in the Upper New York Annual Conference.
Register now – rooms book up quickly!
On Friday, April 26, registration opens at 6:30 p.m. The event ends at noon Sunday, following morning Sunday school and worship. Highlights of this year’s event will include:
Inspiring worship, praise, music and dance led by the youth of the Conference Council on Youth Ministries. Surprises will abound as we consider who we are as children of God.
Games led by the staff of our own Camps and Retreat Ministries – look for familiar faces among our awesome CRM team!
Late-night options like Wacky Olympics, Open Mic on the main stage, a giant game of 4 Square, YSF laser tag, and a Saturday Night Dance Party.
Choose from workshops with titles like: Hello, My Name Is MOP; Hello, My Name is YSF; Hello, My Name is Justice; Hello, My Name is Youth Advisor; Hello, My Name is Mingler, or Teach us How to Pray.
The Barefoot Band (aka members of CCYM) who get us warmed up for worship with songs and dances.
Things to remember:
All meals are on your own. The Registration fee covers your room at the hotel, and your event registration only.
The Youth Service Fund (YSF), has terrific items for sale, including T-shirts with this year’s theme, and (new this year) sweatpants with the YSF dove, as well as snacks and drinks. The YSF auction table has themed baskets filled with all sorts of goodies to be auctioned off throughout the weekend.
All youth groups are expected to follow their home church’s Safe Sanctuaries policies in terms of adult supervision and room arrangements.
