TRIENNIUM: JULY 16-20, 2019

PRESBYTERIAN YOUTH SUMMER CONFERENCE
An amazing opportunity for current 8th graders through graduating seniors to participate in an energetic gathering of thousands of youth from around the country for a five day Presbyterian youth conference.

This event only takes place every three years at Purdue University. Youth will fly to Indiana together with dozens of others from our presbytery and stay in dorms. Throughout the week, they will participate in small groups, large groups, music, games and fun activities. It is an opportunity to connect our youth with our progressive denomination, Presbyterian Church (USA), and provides opportunities to grow in their faith.

COST:
Because our church thinks this is such an important opportunity for our youth, they will provide $500 scholarships to Wasatch Presbyterian Youth participating. Another $150 per person will be gifted from our presbytery.  That leaves the remaining balance to be paid by the family ($350: $100 due January 28 and $250 due by July 1).

COMMITMENT DEADLINE:
The registration deadline is January 28th. At that time we will need a $100 deposit plus permission forms filled out (contact me directly for the forms).

Please discuss this with your youth and check out the website together: https://presbyterianyouthtriennium.org.

Let me know what questions you have.
