The third Sunday of every month is being set aside at Camp Wesley Woods in 2013 to nurture young people in their faith.
Ignition is a Christian gathering of youth from 12- to 18-years-old. The monthly events are starting January 20th from 3-5:30 pm at the United Methodist camping facility just southwest of Indianola. Deke Rider, the director at Wesley Woods, envisions that this new initiative will be an intentional way to develop the spiritual lives of teenagers, especially when they don’t have a large youth group in their own churches.
These events will provide opportunities for creative worship, faith sharing, mission outreach, and team building. A nominal fee is charged for participants, but their adult chaperones may participate without cost. Share their flyer with youth, parents, and others in your congregation who may have interest in this innovative ministry.
Ignition is supported in part with apportionment gifts from local churches around the state of Iowa. Thank you for your part in this shared ministry of the Iowa Conference of the United Methodist Church.
