Want to be featured in the Middle School Gathering? We are looking for youth to send short 5-15 second clips of themselves answering the question “What did you do with all your extra time at home during the pandemic?”   We will be compiling a video for an opportunity to see others around the District, since we can’t be together this year.  Youth Leaders – your video is needed too! Could you record yourself reading our theme verse Romans 8:38-39 NIV translation?

Send those videos to via email/Google drive/dropbox by October 23rd to be included.

  • Is your church able to gather with proper social distancing measures?  If so, we encourage you to gather as a group in your church, youth room, gym, parish hall, etc.  If you can’t yet gather as a group, individuals will be able to attend from their home.

  • The Gathering will be collecting an offering. The recipient of the offering will be the FLGA District Sally Sirrine Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund is for youth who wouldn’t be able to attend a gathering without financial assistance.  Collect the offering at your church and send a check to the District Office indicating it is for the MSYG Offering. Or you can simply submit the offering online.

  • Since this will be a virtual gathering, there won’t be a schedule to follow.  The Gathering Planning Team has put together a Gathering Elements guide that outlines the flow of the evening so you can be prepared.  Be sure to take note of the optional activity and the deadline for ordering materials.

  • Click the Take Home Activity button to get details on supplies and ordering.

  • A pre-gathering Bible Study is available for watching.   Also available is an Adult Leaders Pre-Gathering Breakout “Top 10 ways to Experience a Youth Gathering” by Dr. Jake Youmans and Dr. Grant Carey.
