Cost: $125

Fall 2018 Youthquake Registration Info

Youthquakes are retreat weekends with other 6th – 8th grade youth from all over the presbytery at Camp Gilmont in Gilmer and Glen Lake Camp in Glen Rose. During the weekend, youth will experience worship, small groups, fellowship and FUN together.Groups travel to and from camp together and stay in cabins together. Event leadership is provided by the Austin College ACtivators (Fall Events) and Grace Presbytery’s High School PULSE leadership team.

Giving Youth another opportunity to be at camp other than the summer to experience outdoor games, recreation, small group bible study and new friends.

Participants young and old love Youthquake weekends, getting away to retreat and regroup both spiritually and physically.  When the Prairie Valley facilities closed, the distance between the churches west and south of the Metroplex and Gilmont has made it difficult for the youth & sponsors to attend the Youthquakes in East Texas. An alternative facility was located to help serve those congregations in Glen Rose. In October 2013, the first Youthquake was held at the Glen Lake Retreat Center. It was the premiere event for Crossroads, the college-age leadership group, and together with a handful members of PULSE, led the weekend for about 35 – 40 participants.Several churches on the western side of Grace Presbytery combine their youth into one group out of necessity and may not attend Presbytery events. There is a need to reach these congregations.  The facilities at Glen Lake are large enough to accommodate both middle and high school students and their sponsors. Opening this event up to both age groupings would provide a great service to those churches and youth programs. The weekend activities would be a combined mixer on Friday night, all keynotes, service project and meals would be combined and all small groups and Saturday night activities would be separated by age.  If the weekend is being led by both Crossroads and PULSE, Crossroads would lead the high school small groups and PULSE would be leading the middle school small groups.
