From March 22-24, 2013 the Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church will be holding its fifth annual Alive Youth Rally for young people ages 13+.
This year our event theme is “Chosen.” It is our hope that each youth in attendance will come to know that they are God’s object of divine favor. Our goal is for each youth to know that they are made by Jesus, saved by Jesus, and called by Jesus. We want them to know that they are a “chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.”
The event will begin with onsite packet pick-up at 5 PM on March 22, 2013. Registration can be done online under the Registration menu above. We will be capping registration at 500 people this year. The first session will start at 7 PM, and our last meeting will conclude Saturday night, which will be followed by large-scale Angry Birds game that you will want to be a part of. You can sign up to be a part of the game when you arrive. There will be a breakfast served Sunday morning for those that stay Saturday night.
This event will be FREE to all attendees (donations accepted! – you can donate via PayPal on the Alive website). The first 100 to register online will receive a Free Alive t-shirt upon arrival. We will also be providing lodging and food during the event at no cost to those who would like to stay on the church campus. However, we have provided a list of hotels close to the church on the Alive website in case you and your group or family wishes to stay in one of them.
We will have volunteers and sponsors at the event to help supervise, however we do ask that you bring your own chaperones with you, as we ask that no one under the age of 18 be unsupervised. Anyone under the age of 18 must have their parent/guardian fill out the Alive 2013 Emergency Contact/Consent Form located on the Resources page at www.AliveSC.com.
Clothing drive for less fortunate youth of Spartanburg
When you come to Alive this year, bring some extra clothes and shoes to give away! We are looking for gently used clothing for less fortunate young people in our surrounding community in Spartanburg. Gather some as a youth group and bring it all to Alive! Check your closet for clothes you don’t wear anymore, ask your friends to donate their clothes. Together we can cover the young people of Spartanburg.
There are several agencies in the Spartantburg area we will be contributing to. Safe Homes (http://shrcc.org/) and The Children’s Security Blanket (http://www.childrenssecurityblanket.org/) are just a couple that could benefit from our gathering of clothing. Start setting your extra clothing aside now and ask your friends to help contribute.
Saturday afternoon, during Alive, we will ask for volunteers to help sort through the donated clothing and organize all of it into sizes and genders.
Register today and join us in asking for God’s Spirit to be over Alive!
