Happenings

Winter Connection

Winter Connection is an annual event for middle school and high school youth sponsored by the Dakotas Conference Council on Youth Ministry (CCYM.)

2024 Winter Connection

EVENT INFORMATION

  • Event: 2024 Winter Connection (Camp #800)
  • Three locations: Fargo, Mitchell, and Rapid City
  • Dates: January 26-27, 2024
  • Cost: $40.00 per person
  • Ages: Youth in grades 6-12 and adult chaperones

Winter Connection is an opportunity for youth to gather, share, worship, and serve others. Each year there is a focus on a particular theme and scripture along with a unique and important component of service. Our theme for 2024 is Be Bold Be Fearless, and our scripture is Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”  

We can be bold and fearless despite the world, our fears, and our doubts-God is with us and will not fail us. Sometimes we need to put more confidence in what we cannot see, in what God has promised rather than the pain and distractions in our midst today. 

Make sure to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, weather appropriate clothing, winter jacket, and gear.
