WHAT DO WE DO AT LCY CONVENTION?At our annual LCY Convention, we meet Jesus together and celebrate the ministry we share! We will join in large and small groups to learn, grow, play, and build community together, and conduct the business of our synod's youth organization, SCLCY. This is a perfect opportunity for youth and adults to meet new people from around South Carolina, and see what it means that we're Church together in the ELCA!
KEYNOTE SPEAKERWe're excited that Joe Davis will be our keynote speaker this year! Find out more about Joe at his website: http://joedavispoetry.com
WHAT WILL ADULTS DO?*** There is an ADULT GROUP!!! ***
Adult Leaders are welcome all weekend as participants for our Adult Workshops. Please fill out the registration the same as your youth. We will have a session to talk about the ELCA Youth Gathering.
YOUTH PROGRAMWe will have three tracks at Convention:
+ LIVING FAITH +This is the track most will be on. We'll have workshops to talk about living out our faith in a way that helps us learn how God's plan breaks the patterns of our lives and our world through the death and resurrection of Jesus! This will be a time of both activities and workshops, and the closer we get to having it all ready, the more excited we're all getting.
+ WORSHIP +Up to 10 youth will have an opportunity to follow the WORSHIP track, headed up by our Chaplain Ally McDonough. This group will spend their small group time while others are on the LIVING FAITH track preparing Friday and Saturday devotions and Sunday worship. The idea is for us to use all our senses and creativity to create worship experiences that will be holy and fun.
+ DRAMA +Up to 15 youth will have an opportunity to follow the DRAMA track, headed up by Lavone Griffin and Clint Eastham! This group will put together a 10-15 minute dramatic presentation for worship on Sunday morning that focuses on this year's theme of GRACE Changes Everything, and transitions into revealing the new theme for next year, which is a secret! Also, this group will conceive of and assemble an art piece to serve as a backdrop or icon for worship on Sunday morning. Throughout the weekend, we'll all be watching this piece of art take shape!We're so excited to see how God is using us this year!
