If someone gets their eyes examined and it is said that they have “20/20 Vision,” in human terms they have “perfect” vision. When we consider our Christian lives and our attempt to follow God’s Word and plans, it often seems difficult to see things clearly. God’s Word serves as a lens to correct our faulty vision. Hebrews 12:2 says, “let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Join us at the 2022 Michigan District Jr. High Youth Gathering to explore the meaning of “fixing our eyes on Jesus.”
A note regarding masks during the COVID-19 pandemic: The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has provided mask guidance that flexes based on three key COVID-19 phases (response, recovery, and readiness). The Michigan District will follow any mask mandates by the MDHHS, local health departments, or venues that are in place at the time of an event or conference. Masks are generally available at the registration desk. If you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of COVID prior to arrival, please stay home.
