300th Anniversary update: McPherson RYC to celebrate anniversary.

The Regional Youth Conference (RYC) 2008 to be held at McPherson (Kan.) College and McPherson Church of the Brethren on April 4-6 is planned as a celebration of the 300 years of history of the Church of the Brethren. The theme is, “Cherishing the Tradition: The Church of the Brethren, 300 Years of Faithfulness,” with Mark 12:30-31 as the focus scripture.

A line-up of Brethren musicians and story tellers will lead the conference. Musicians include Michael Stern, Andy and Terry Murray, and Peg Lehman. Jim Lehman will be the story teller. Other stories will be brought by people involved in current church programs, videos of Brethren ministries, and people representing Brethren from history. The weekend will include worship experiences and concerts.

Students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to register and attend, along with adult advisors and youth volunteers. Other interested adults are invited to attend concerts and story telling times. Registration packets will be available in January, contact director of campus ministries Tom Hurst at 620-242-0503 or
