Eight High School Youth attended the Higher Things Youth Conference on the campus of Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, IN the last week of August. The speakers were Rev. George Borghardt and Rev. Matt Richard. There were also breakout sessions where the youth were able to choose different topics about faith and life to learn about. The kids had a great time learning about the love of God in Christ Jesus. They are already looking forward to next year’s conference. We will begin planning for a Youth Group trip to the Higher Things Conference being held at Carleton College, Northfield, MN next summer, July 3rd -6th, 2018. The theme is Sanctified. Please have registration forms in by December 1st, 2017. All 8th graders and high schoolers should have received a registration form. If you are concerned about what your kids learn from the world and culture, then make sure they learn of the Word of God at the Higher Things Conference. You can get more information at
