“For I am about to do a brand-new thing.  See, I have already begun!  Do you not see it?  I will make a pathway through the wilderness for my people to come home.  I will create rivers for them in the desert!”  ~Isaiah 43:19

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think..”  ~Romans 12:2a

Be transformed as you discover the amazing things Jesus wants to do IN you and THROUGH you during this exciting, one-day rally, coming to the St. Paul RiverCentre on Saturday, October 31.  This rally is geared for high school students*** and will include worship music led by Union College students, fun activities to help you connect with other Minnesota teens, and meaningful Bible messages that will encourage you in your relationship with Jesus!

The transformation begins at 9:30 a.m.  We can’t wait to see you there.  Don’t forget to bring a friend!
