Registration opening for summer conferences

Registration is open for three synodwide conferences this summer.

The WELS International Youth Rally will take place June 28 – July 1 at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colo. Starting March 1, registration opened for the contact youth leaders. Event organizer, Mrs. Kris Snyder, says, “The contact youth leaders can fully register and pay for themselves, then simply enter the total number of people in their group. Starting March 28, additional youth leaders and youth can register and pay. In order to identify with their group they will need to choose their contact youth leader from a list.”

WELS teens are encouraged to attend the rally for three days of spiritual encouragement and fellowship with other WELS teens around the country. Snyder says, “Sit alongside 2,000 others and hear what God spoke 2,000 years ago that is still true today: “Resist the devil and he will flee” (James 4:7). Still true! “I have loved you with an everlasting love” (Jeremiah 31:3). Still true! Our God Reigns! Forever true!”
