Northern Conference Youth Board "Be Like Jesus, Jr."

The Annual Be Like Jesus, Junior event for 1st-3rd graders, is moving to St. Mark’s Lutheran at 200 S. Main Street in Washington, Illinois, due to construction this fall at Salem. This awesome event for young children is on Saturday, November 2, from 10am – 2pm. The cost is $15 per person and will include music, a craft, hands-on service projects, lunch and a t-shirt. Salem children are encouraged to invite a friend.

We will take the Salem bus if there is enough interest in traveling together for this event. The registration deadline is Sunday, October 13.  Scholarships are available as needed.  Contact Jill Goldhammer for more information.

Northern Conference Youth Board “BE LIKE JESUS” 24-hour servant lock-in

Each February, 3rd through 6th graders from a variety of local congregations in our conference participate in a 24-hour servant lock-in. This annual event draws 150+ children and youth and includes worship with a nationally known Christian artist and hands-on small group service projects in the community, food, fellowship and fun. Small groups are led by high school students with support from adult youth leaders and volunteers from the Northern Conference. This is an incredible annual event for children.
