YOUTH WEEK 2019! APPEAL FOR SPONSORS
Magaliesburg RSA, 2–7 January. For youth aged 13 to 22 years. So many of our neighbourhood Youth have heard God’s call at Youth Week and we want to take more this year – we have many who turned 13 this year and it’s their turn to shine.
Brothers and sisters, our neighbourhood Youth cannot afford the P1,400 fee so let us give generously to sponsor them.
If you can help, please call, SMS or WhatsApp Pete Healy or email: peterh132@gmail.com

YOUTH! PLEASE GET YOUR APPLICATIONS IN – DEADLINE IS 31 OCTOBER – THAT’S 10 DAYS TIME! Get forms and submit them at the church office, at Cross Gold book shop or at OBC Ignite Youth on Friday night.

PARENTS! Many of our youth testify that they gave their lives to Christ at youth week. It’s 5 days of sports, non-sports and adventure activities, good food and so much more.
What remains most popular is tabernacle – twice a day, with great praise and worship and teaching by some of the top youth preachers in the region.
There is quiet time and bible study in the morning – so many opportunities for the youth to connect with God.

The P1,400 fee includes transport, accommodation and food.
