The senior youth group is excitedly anticipating their trip to Mackinaw Island, June 25-28, 2017. The Michigan Synod has chosen this year’s theme of FORTRESS from 2 Samuel 22:2: “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.”
Pastor Sidwell and Sue Steuer are taking seven youth to Mackinaw Island for:
Sectionals on a variety of subjects,
Bible studies lead by Rev. Dr. David Maier, Rev Ryan Peterson, and Rev. Bill Yonker;
A servant event
Presenters and musical offerings include: 321 Improv, Swen and Dean, Sevenglory, Bob Lenz, Rev.Tige and Sara Culbertson, Bryan Drake, Brian Pruitt, Bryan Osbourne, and David Van Behren.
Fellowship activities include group challenges, bike rental, boat cruises, lawn games, carriage rides, sports and concerts.
An exclusive experience at the Fort.
The cost of the trip is $385 per person and includes three nights of lodging, ferry service to and from the island, a Gathering t-shirt, seven meals, luggage transfer and all Gathering activities and events. A $350 deposit was paid from the 2016 budget and pop cans deposits. The Life Expressions fundraiser brought in $125 (a special thank you to the Hernandez family, who each made three signs) and Michaela Haw donated $100 from the Mary Kay event. There was also leaf raking that raised $100. The Easter breakfast will be a free willing offering to help with the cost of attending the Gathering.
