God’s spark of grace and love is within each of us. How do we respond and nurture the spark? How do we “fan the flame,” joining with others to share God’s message with the world? As we consider these questions, the biblical stories of Jesus, Mary his mother, Isaiah, and the Apostles will be our guide and illustrate how other people of faith have responded. We will worship and play, study and build relationships as we celebrate God’s spark within us and the ways the Spirit moves amidst us all.
The Middle School Conference is designed for youth who have completed fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth grade by summer 2023, and for their group leaders. Adults must be fully registered and housed with their youth in campus housing. The daily schedule includes keynote, worship, recreation, singing, small groups, and many other activities.
The conference will be held at Maryville College, a PC(USA) affiliated private college, located in Maryville, TN, between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Knoxville.
