Seven high-school youth from Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church are spending this week at Berry College in Rome at AFFIRM, a leadership camp which draws participants from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
They will choose among nine “units,” which have unique emphases and requirements. COS’s director of high school and family ministry, Jeremy Hall, is helping lead the unit called “Journeys” for 36 youth who have just completed eighth or ninth grade. For six hours every day Hall will lead large and small group activities.
Youth returning from AFFIRM have previouslys parked new ideas and ministries at COS.
