Youth Immerse at Lake Junaluska – July 24th

ImmerseOn July 24th student groups from our conference will trek to Lake Junaluska for Immerse.  I wanted to let you know that it is not too late to be a part of this experience and give you a heads up on what I believe is one of the conference’s best kept secrets.

Here is what the 50 dollar registration fee gets you:

1)   6 worship sessions with Robert McMichael

2)   4 Whole group teaching sessions

3)   4 breakout sessions.  These allow students to sign up for what they are interested in.  The sessions are on topics of overcoming struggles that are students face to how they can use their talents and gifts to serve Christ and the Church (and many more)

4)   4 Family Group meetings.  Students are assigned age appropriate family groups where they engage in deep discussion to go further into that nights teaching

5)   Community building recreation/game time…so you as a youth leader do not have to plan extra stuff, we’ve got you covered (we strongly believe and see this as a retreat for you as well)

6)   A t-shirt…because the “youth trip – police” would shut us down if we didn’t give away a t-shirt

7)   CONNECTIONS!!!  We’ve had great speakers and workers at Immerse in the past, but at the end of the day they left the state and went back to their home.  This year all of the teachers, family group leaders and breakout leaders are from the SOUTH CAROLINA conference.  This allows us as adults and youth workers to make connections that will impact the students MUCH longer than the 4 days at Immerse.


Greenville District, COME AND SEE!!!  Registration is still open at http://scmyp.org/immerse/ and you can also check out some pictures and testimonies at the “IMMERSE” facebook page.


If there are any other questions you have about the event or if you’d like to hear more, please feel free to call me at 864-421-3800


See ya there,

Matthew Greer

Campus Ministry Needs Your Information

Hello fellow Methodists,


We hope that you’re having a good summer!  We in campus ministry are gearing up for a new school year and we need your help.  Most of our colleges and universities do not provide student contact information anymore to campus Campus Ministryministries. For this reason, the only way we are able to welcome your students is if we get their information from you.  Even if you just have their name and school that they will be attending, that would be helpful.  Any information you have – facebook, email address, home address, phone – all of it would be appreciated.  Thanks so much for your help with this!  If you could send this to your youth pastor or high school Sunday school teachers or anyone that would have this information that would be great.  We thank you for your support and prayers as these young adults start this new chapter in their lives.  Thanks for sending in this information!
