Youth who are currently in 8th grade through 11th are invited to be part of this important start as we pilot a new Lutheran Youth Organization. Students and their sponsors can travel with their congregation’s voting members to Galveston for the Synod Assembly and take part in THE ZONE, a leadership track within the Synod Assembly designed specifically for student leaders who want to put their faith in action in the 2011-12 school year.
This new pilot LYO is an invitation for youth to select one or two Action Teams (click link for more info) to practice their faith in ways that really make a difference with youth from other congregations.
Thanks to a grant through our synod’s Mission Endowment Fund, there is a discounted rate for people attending THE ZONE. (This is different than those registering as visitors or voting members for the Synod Assembly.) Housing and programming will be separate too!
Total Cost for The LYO ZONE: $250: Includes hotel room (with up to 3 roommates) and all meals except dinner on Saturday night.
Register Now! The deadline is May 13, 2011 for the best price. An additional $50 for late registration. You will need to know your congregation ID #. You can make a choice for your Learning Lab on Sat. afternoon.
Please bring an adult sponsor with you. One for every 8 youth, preferably both male and female sponsors. Youth interested in being on an LYO Action team who are not able to attend the Synod Assembly, can register by September 1.
