ALiVE is our annual synod middle-school retreat, scheduled for September 25-27, 2020, at Camp Nawakwa. Congregations from across our synod gather with their adult advisors and youth for an early fall weekend that includes large group gatherings with singing led by our ALiVE Alumni Band, theme-centered videos and stories, and games, interspersed with small group gatherings, where youth gather with peers and a small group leader, to converse about the theme and it’s impact in their lives of faith. It’s a great event for your Confirmation students and classes.
The weekend also includes crafts, games, campfires, free-time, and community-building that allows youth and their adult counterparts time to deepen existing friendships, and create new ones. Congregational advisors can also count on the option of receiving some intentional continuing education. Plus, inspiring outdoor worship often highlights our last morning together at Nawakwa’s famous Upper Temple!
+ Considering contacting 5th grade youth and their families NOW. + Event cost fees for 2020: $136.00/person ($50 deposit due at time of registration)
Registration for 2020 Opening Soon!
Our synod events are moving to an online registration platform in 2020, so registration links to the new pages will be avialable soon. You will have the option as a congregational advisor to pay online using Paypal or a church credit card, either the deposit or the full amount for each participant. If you opt to merely pay the deposit online, you can still bring a check for the balance to the event in September, if this assists with cash flow during these difficult times. You will want to have basic contact information for participants and their shirt sizes handy, when you register yourself and your youth.
