WELS Christian Aid and Relief (CAR) will be modeling the Community, Care & Compassion (CCC) grant program at the 2024 Youth Rally in Fort Collins, Colorado. Through this opportunity the youth will learn about compassion ministry with hands on involvement while preparing packages for people in their hometown communities who may not have a church home.

2024 Youth Rally Activity Opportunity

This year the youth will work on packages for Service Providers, Elderly, and Those in Need. They will do this by making tie off fleece quilts, *cards of encouragement, and Lego creations. All the supplies needed to make the packages will be provided. All they need to bring with them are hearts and hands for service. This will be like the 2022 Youth Rally with some additions to the activity, including a LEGO creation table! Check out last year’s video!

Youth Contact Leader Sign-Up

Youth leaders signing up for a specific time slot will be guaranteed one package per group to take home to give to a person in need in their community. The first 1,000 kids to participate will receive a cool t-shirt for helping.

This Christian Aid and Relief volunteer opportunity will be held in the Durell Center where the registration and welcome center is located.

Giving the cards and gifts will allow the youth to experience the most exciting and gratifying part of the service opportunity, sharing the love for their Lord and Savior through their words and actions with those in need.
