Identity Youth Week (June 5-8) aims to deepen awareness of teens about who they are in the eyes of Christ, themselves, their peers, and their community. With 1,000 different voices telling them “Be anything,” “Do anything,” “Believe anything,” and ever multiplying ways to express themselves, it is our desire to help each other walk with the one who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Each morning will start with worship, led by youth from around the city. Dynamic speakers will follow, revealing biblical truths about things going on in the students’ day to day lives. Mentors will host discussions, guiding a team of 5-8 students, separated by gender and age range, keeping topics narrowed to their stage in life.
We will use afternoons to focus on activities aimed at deepening the students’ awareness of their part in the world around them through service to our greater community. We will accomplish this by helping the local public elementary school with labor projects, building benches and painting walls at St. Trinity, leading games and activities for New American children, picking up trash at the parks, and provide absolutely free car washes at 3 different Lutheran churches.
The day will conclude with reflection on the conversations and activities. Students will be filled with new experiences and thoughts … ideas that will incite further discussion throughout their evening. Be ready to engage.
