Youth Conference/Independence City 2014 Overview

On May 10th, we held our first annual Independence City.  Youth were put into a simulated life activity where they encountered different obstacles and learned how to overcome them.  Here are some obstacles the youth found:

  • A few were given a criminal record and were not able to get an apartment until they jumped through some hoops.
  • Some youth found that they needed a babysitter to watch their kid.
  • Others found that they didn’t have as much money as they thought when it came time to get groceries.

We hope that everyone gained a little something from this experience and we hope everyone had a lot of fun, too.  We are looking forward to holding it again next year.

The next event coming up is the family fishing event on June 27th from 6pm-9pm at the Mt. Carmel Social Club.  Please bring your family and friends.  Look for more info about the Cardboard Boat Regatta next month.
