Hey WSYMers! Today is the day!!!
Our group will have a get together at 6:30 in the Black Box. We will touch base about the plans for the weekend, you can grab a hype team T-shirt and talk through pre-conference, and hang out before the conference starts. We will also talk through what we need before tonight's session.
No meal will be provided tonight. You need to eat before you come. We should wrap up around 10.
Invite your friends! The more the merrier!!! They will not have to pay the registration fee, but will need to buy their own shirt if they want one.
Also, anyone from West Side is welcome to purchase any of the other CT merchandise before the conference. Just make sure you purchase it from one of our merchandise workers. Don't just start grabbing stuff.
Parents! We need… No, I need your help this weekend. We have a large group with many of its parents and leaders working during the conference. While at the conference your teens will be your responsibility. Please don't solely rely on us to keep up with your child. Pick up and drop off is on you, please reference the schedule at Christeens.org/schedule. I have asked Jon Ortiz and Sarah Cole to help lead our group while they are here. They will also be helping guide our devotional time on Saturday night after session three.
Ideally, instead of dropping off and picking up your teen, I hope you can come with them to the conference. I would love it if y'all stayed for the sessions. Not only would that help us keep an eye on our child and our group, but I think anybody can benefit from being a part of the conference. We also need more eyes on the crowd and more people to jump in and serve.
Our teens are welcome to sit on the first couple rows in front of centerstage. BUT... if you are late getting to your seat we're not going to be rude to people that might happen to sit in those spots. Our group will have early access into the theater through the entrances by the Black Box so its going to be your responsibility to get in early and get a seat. All we ask is that most of our parents sit in the balcony.
Please be praying for this weekend and our youth! Let me know if you have any questions!!!- Jake
