2011 Church Youth Day is September 25
Church groups and individuals are already registering to attend Church Youth Day at Mars Hill College on September 25, 2011, with featured speaker Will Graham, and musical guests, the Annie Moses Band.
Following an inspirational service in Moore Auditorium in the morning, participants will be invited to have lunch at the Mars Hill cafeteria. Church Youth Day will also include the chance to take in both men’s and women’s soccer games at Ammons Family Athletic Center, as the MHC Lions take on their SAC rivals, the Indians of Catawba College.
Speaker Will Graham is the third generation of Grahams to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the banner of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Will is the grandson of Billy Graham and the oldest son of Franklin Graham. His ministry focuses on youth-oriented, one-day events.
The Annie Moses Band is a Christian family of Juilliard-trained musicians and award winning songwriters dedicated to virtuosity in the arts, musical excellence, strength of family, and a message of faith.
According to Dr. Gordon Benton, Director of Church Relations at Mars Hill College, Church Youth Day is an event designed to draw the community and the college together under a common banner of worship, good music and fun.
“I hope that the local church groups and families of western North Carolina will take advantage of this day to come together for worship and fun at Mars Hill College,” Benton said. “It’s very exciting to be able to offer an inspiring biblical message from Will Graham and high-quality music from the Annie Moses Band. Add a couple of Lions’ soccer games and you have an exciting event for the whole family and church group.”
Advance tickets are $12 per person before September 11; $15 after that date. This amount covers lunch and other events of the day. For more information, or to register your family or church group, contact Gordon Benton at firstname.lastname@example.org; or 828/689-1276.
