Power Connection 2018 REGISTRATIONS

Date: 01/02/2018 - 01/31/2018
Time: All Day

Dear Westwood Middle School Ministry students & parents,

It’s that time of year again!  Time to start thinking about our annual summer trip – and how you can register TODAY!  This year, we are going to be serving at RCA’s Power Connection Work Camp in Liberty, MO followed by the Power Connection Conference in Lawrence, KS.  The dates for this year’s trip are: July 24th – 29th, 2018.  The summer trip is a great opportunity for your student to grow as a follower of Jesus, to grow as a friend with other MSM students, and to make a difference for the people they serve.  We strongly encourage you to consider sending your student to this life changing event!

What you need to know:

  • All the information that you could need/want is found at: synodyouth.org/power-connection/
  • You MUST be registered online by January 31st if you are planning on going, as we will not be able to secure spots for our large group unless we register by opening day.
  • Registration this year is online and is available now! Please go to synodyouth.org  and select the ‘Register Online’ graphic, which will link you to a registration for Power Connection 2018.  If you have questions, or are not able to register online for any reason, please let us know – we will help you out.  *Also note that the work camp t-shirt fee IS included in what you pay, so go ahead and select YES when prompted.
  • The cost per student is $330 which includes all transportation, housing, activities and food (both on site as well as in transit), as well as 2 t-shirts.
  • Although you register through the RCA website, payments are submitted separately to Westwood and will be collected online through the church website again this year. SEE BELOW to submit a payment.
  • *By signing up and paying a deposit, you are agreeing to follow through with paying in full (as the church has to pay in full up-front to secure your student’s spot). All payments are non-refundable.
  • If your student is interested in attending, but the financial commitment would prevent them from registering, please talk with us and we can discuss possible scholarship aid.
  • Any questions, concerns, or comments? Contact kara@westwoodchurch.net

Please prayerfully consider helping your student to attend Power Connection this summer… we’re confident it will be an amazing experience for everyone!
