Special announcement to our RYS member churches regarding Convention
Special announcement to our RYS member churches regarding the RYS National high school convention:
At this time we are proceeding in faith with our events, but we are monitoring the coronavirus situation very closely. The Board of Reformed Youth Services has decided to extend the registration deadline to April 30 based on this unprecedented situation. Please make sure all of your youth and sponsors register by that date, joining over 500 who have already registered. We are also pushing the payment deadline back to June 1 to allow all of us more time to make good decisions. Total refunds will be issued to churches if necessary.
The safety of our covenant youth is our priority, and we will follow the government’s recommendations/directions accordingly. RYS will be communicating any changes to our plans on our website and Facebook page as they are decided. These are uncertain times, but as reformed believers, we trust the Lord’s sovereign leading and protection and expect Him to use this worldwide crisis for His glory. May each of us, as permitted, exhibit love and kindness, and share the good news of Jesus to our neighbors as we are given opportunity.
We are proceeding in similar fashion with our Midwest Middle School Retreat scheduled for early May and will be communicating information as decisions are made.
We appreciate your prayers as we navigate this volatile situation.
Serving Him together,
The Board of Reformed Youth Services
