Registration and consent forms: Youthquake 2015
Please let your youth (high school through 2nd year college) know that we are having the 4th Youthquake on Friday, Sept. 18 to Saturday, Sept 19, 2015 at First Baptist Church, 1515 Santa Clara, Alameda, CA. This is an event that brings youth together from many churches to worship, fellowship, and serve the Lord in missions. Youth stay overnight at the church. Saturday is our mission day.
It begins on Friday with 6-7 pm registration, 7 pm the program starts. We’ll have an outstanding missionary speaker.
Saturday begins with a local missionary speaker who has been working over 20 years with recovering addicts. After our early morning worship, we will head out to various mission sites around the Bay Area. Sites include, City Team SF, World Impact Oakland, Allen Temple Street Disciples, Richmond Rescue Mission, Alameda Food Bank, Seafarers Ministry of the Golden Gate, Abode Services in Fremont (a family homeless shelter program),
Organizational sponsors are: Evergreen Association of American Baptist Churches, Growing Healthy Churches, American Baptist Churches of the Central Pacific Coast, Pacific Coast Baptist Association, Association of Northern California American Baptist Churches, New Life Christian Fellowship (Castro Valley), First Baptist Church (Alameda), Allen Temple Baptist Church (Oakland), Oakland Burmese Mission Baptist Church.
Individuals sponsors: Rev. Dr. J. Alfred Smith Sr., Rev. Steve and Trudi Bils.
Past events were held at Oakland Burmese Mission Baptist Church, Allen Temple Baptist Church (Oakland), and Portola Baptist Church (San Francisco).
Please encourage your youth to attend. The event is open to youth from any church of any denomination. Our hopes is that by having these yearly events, the youth will build relationships that will cross ethnic and cultural, denominational, and social-economical backgrounds. Our youth are the future church. Many of us have forged lasting friendships by building relationships in our youth.
Attached is the registration materials and the medical forms each person will need.
Youth must be accompanied by your church’s responsible adults.
Time is running short, please sign up your youth! We would appreciate it if you don’t have all the names, if you can give us a count for the food. $35 covers everything and a tee shirt!
Thank you for your heart for young people!
Rev. Katie Choy-Wong
