What does God require of you but to do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God? -Micah 6:8
What does justice have to do with your faith? Find out at this year's Youth Faith Formation retreats. Using the Justice LED curriculum (Justice Leaders Engaging and Developing), we will explore justice as a central part of our Christian calling. This event is for confirmation classes and church youth groups that are interested in strengthening their understanding of the United Church of Christ while deepening their faith, and is a supplement to confirmation and youth group programs. Youth will be able to make connections between the history and beliefs of the UCC and justice as a central part of our Christian calling. Music and worship will be led by Richard Bruxvoort Colligan (www.worldmaking.net).
How do the beliefs of the United Church of Christ work into a justice framework? Join us and find out!
Co-Sponsored by the Wisconsin Conference United Church of Christ and United Church Camps, Inc. The programs are subsidized by gifts to Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM).
Registration for the March retreat begins January 2, 2014.
