High School District Youth Gathering
We are counting down to our weekend in Palm Springs for worship and a fun time together at the DYG! Over the course of the weekend, high school youth will have the opportunity to serve, grow in faith, make new friends and connect with old friends, have fun in a variety of ways and worship together.
The District Youth Gathering theme is “Present to the End”. Each day, teenagers face fears, anxieties, and stress like we’ve never seen in a generation before. Suicide rates are on the rise. Depression, anxiety, bullying, and online social media pressures plague our students and their spiritual growth. This District Youth Gathering follows up to the National Youth Gathering’s theme “Real.Present.God.” and will bring a new light to how Christ’s presence is with us until the end. He never leaves us. We may think we are alone in difficult times, but the God who created, loves and daily redeems us through our baptism is with us, walking beside our daily struggles, celebrating our wins, and always by our side.
