Workshop Choices and Descriptions
It’s Not About Us: Using your Talents to Serve Others.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Each of us possess unique skills and talents – whether we have discovered them yet or not! When we step outside our comfort zones to help those in need, we have the opportunity to discover and develop our gifts while making a difference in our communities. Join us to identify your individual skills and talents and brainstorm ways you can use them to make a difference in the world around you!
Make a Joyful Noise
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. – Psalm 100:1-2
Worship is one of the greatest communal acts we can do as Christians, and the more we get involved in interacting with worship, the more enhanced the worship experience becomes. This workshop is your opportunity to participate in worship by joining the YAR choir.
We will work together to learn a fun worship song that we will perform during the Sunday YAR worship, and you can take the song back to your churches to share your YAR experience.
The choir will be led by Nathan Jeffries. Nathan got his bachelor degree in Vocal Music Performance from Hendrix College in Conway, AR. Currently he is serving as the Pastor at St. Paul UMC in Brighton and as the District Youth Coordinator for the Mississippi River District.
