The Emerge youth of Richmond First United Methodist Church will be attending the Kentucky United Methodist youth conference, Winter Blitz, Jan. 17-19 in Louisville!


The conference includes four sessions of worship, games and messages in the West Wing of Freedom Hall. We’ll be staying two nights at Christ Church United Methodist in Louisville.

The cost for Winter Blitz is $65 (if you signed up with Jonathan prior to Dec. 1, you only pay $55). This includes breakfast and lunch Saturday but not four other meals (Friday dinner, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast, Sunday lunch) — youth will need to bring money to cover those four meals, probably at least $7/meal (fast food places, mall food court). We will meet at church Friday, Jan. 17, at 4:30 p.m. and return Sunday, Jan. 19, around 3 p.m.

To sign up, email Jonathan at . Those who attend will need to have completed an Emerge Student Form for 2019-2020 (if you’ve already filled one out this school year, you don’t have to do it again!) and a permission slip, both attached below.

Your money and forms are due Wednesday, Jan. 15. As always, we offer discounts for siblings and we have scholarship money available for any who need it — just ask Jonathan. You can pay online here at our online-giving site; just choose “Youth Retreats” as the fund.

A packing list will be added here closer to the date of the event.
