Junior Youth

Junior Youth, grades 6-8, join us to experience Love is a Verb this summer in Orlando!

Junior Youth convention will run from Wednesday to Saturday and feature programming by Asia Frye and Mariah Martin with music led by Sadie Gustafson-Zook.

A typical day for Junior Youth will include worship times, small groups, games, rec hall time and hands-on spiritual activities. Junior Youth will have opportunities to contribute to our worship services. On Thursday, Junior Youth will all participate together in a service project. Special activities will happen throughout the week, including a scavenger hunt. Junior Youth will spend the day together from morning to evening, including during delegate sessions, with breaks for lunch and dinner.

Junior Youth will explore our convention theme Love is a Verb by seeing that God has first loved us. Because of God’s love we respond with love for ourselves, love for others and love for creation. Jenny Castro, Communications Associate and Coordinator for the Women in Leadership Project for Mennonite Church USA, will help us explore love of self. Todd Wynward, author of Rewilding the Way and founder of a wilderness school in New Mexico, will help us explore love of the earth.

Each and every Junior Youth also will help us to understand how we love others.

Sign-up with your youth group, come alone or come with a friend. See you in Orlando!
