The National Youth Conference (NYC) Office has released 10 Bible
studies for youth groups to use as they prepare to attend the July 19-24
conference. Several of the Bible studies were written by NYC speakers,
using the scripture text they will preach on during the week of NYC.
The Bible studies are intended to help youth and advisors familiarize
themselves with the NYC theme and scriptures before the conference, and
to help them prepare spiritually for the experience. Most of the Bible
studies follow a typical format of a brief reflection followed by
questions for individual or group discussion. The Bible studies are
available at www.brethren.org/yya/nyc/theme.html .
In addition to Bible studies, the NYC Office has complied several
pages of information and resources intended to help youth groups prepare
for NYC physically, emotionally, and spiritually. An additional way for
the entire congregation to be involved in the preparation for NYC is by
participating in NYC Prayer Day on Sunday, June 22. For Prayer Day
resources and all other preparation materials, visit www.brethren.org/yya/nyc/prepare.html .
