YIA Hopping to Council

YIA frogAfter inviting everyone to Youth In Action at each Pre-Council meeting, the Youth In Action planning team wants to “bug” you one more time about this unique opportunity for the youth of your church. This unique event is “hoppening” February 19 – 21, 2016. Online registration is still open through the Youth In Action page, and costs $35.

Youth In Action invites young people to participate in the life of our diocese in a tangible and important way. The fun starts on Friday night (02/19) at 7:00 PM as youth arrive at St. John’s Episcopal Church in McAllen. On Saturday morning, the group will be commissioned at Council 2016, then go out into McAllen for a day spent volunteering with local ministries and missions. After a full weekend, Youth in Action ends after Sunday morning church service at St. John’s.

Churches provides chaperons for their youth who are available the entire weekend (cannot be participating in Council). Each adult sponsor must have completed the Safeguarding God’s Children course in the last five years and have his or her own vehicle for transporting students. [Ratio, 5:1]

After registering, please complete the appropriate forms and send to Laura Kean, the Camps & Conferences Administrator, by email (laura.kean@dwtx.org) or by fax (210-824-2164), before 1:00 PM on Monday, February 8.

If you have further questions about this event, visit the Council 2016 website, reply to this email, or contact Meredith Rogers (meredith.rogers@dwtx.org). We “hop” to see you in McAllen soon. Youth In Action 2016 is going to “toadally” rock!

Blessings,
