“CONNECT” In an age of mobile technology, young Christians are connected to each other more than ever before. Instead of going against this, the CI Program Commitee has created a theme that will guide young Christians’ to not only connect with others, but with God. This groundbreaking theme that is as relevant as the times will introduce the different facets of grace in a more accessible way. 1 Corinthians 15:10a “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.” As once emphasized by John Wesley, delegates will learn about the Prevenient, Justifying, and Sanctifying Graces. But how does that connect with the theme? Well, the idea is that God has been CALLING us ever since we were born (prevenient), and now God is giving us a choice to answer (justifying) and stay on the line (sanctifying). This theme incorporates an aspect of our faith unique to the United Methodist tradition.
God has been calling and texting you before you even knew He existed. Will you choose to CONNECT?
