What a weekend! Over 2,300 turned out for Winter Blitz 2011. With a definite chill in the air outside, the temperature was totally on blast inside Broadbent Arena. The band Abandon offered three days of praise and worship music; funnyman Bob Stromberg kept us laughing; and keynote speaker Duffy Robbins brought the Word in an easy to understand manner.
Saturday over 300 youth and young adults participated in our Mission Excursions, helping to serve and make a difference in the lives of many people in and around the Louisville area. Although the spots to go serve were during the mission excursion were limited, all had the opportunity to give to the mission offering. This year $3,800 was raised and the offering will go to Kentucky Conference Camp Scholarships, Imagine No Malaria and the KYUMC Ministry with Young People Honduras Mission Trip.
But a major thank you has to go to the over 500 volunteers that gave their time to bring their youth groups to Winter Blitz.. Thank you!
