Youth @ General Synod 2009

Registration for the Youth @ General Synod 2009 program has opened, and we invite you and your senior high youth groups to participate in this enriching faith experience. Click Here for a copy of the Youth @ General Synod Invitation

What: Youth @ General Synod will combine General Synod events with three days of service projects, evening programs, social opportunities and after hours activities. It will be a great opportunity for youth to learn about and participate in the wider church and to grow in faith, service and friendship with peers in the United Church of Christ.

Who: Youth @ General Synod is a youth program for high school youth groups (ages 14-18/grades 9 - 12).Youth groups may register with a minimum of 2 adults and 2 youth, with adult genders matching the gender of the youth. Individuals may not register on their own, but must be with a group meeting this minimum; youth group leaders and their adult chaperones will be responsible for the supervision of their youth during the event.

When and Where: General Synod is in Grand Rapids, Michigan; the youth program will run from June 24 - June 30, 2009 (with July 1st serving as a travel day).

Why: Since financial and transportation considerations force many youth groups to choose between a mission/service trip and wider church gathering each summer, we are offering a General Synod program that includes mission/service experience.

Cost: $465 for Youth and $515 for Adults. The price difference reflects a $50.00 General Synod registration discout for youth.
