Wheat Ridge Ministries of Itasca, Ill., is calling for nominations of high-school-age youth who are members of Synod congregations for its youth Health and Hope Award.
Adult leaders (pastors, youth counselors and others) may nominate teenagers “who are living a lifestyle of health and hope through projects and volunteer responsibilities in their churches, schools and communities,” says a Wheat Ridge flier calling for nominations. “They are making a difference in the lives of God’s people in need at places like homeless shelters, tutoring programs, hospitals and nursing homes. They are God’s instruments willing to assist in any way that is necessary.”
To nominate youth who are finishing Grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 this spring, go to the Wheat Ridge Web site, www.wheatridge.org, click on “Youth Health and Hope Award” and download the nomination form.
The awards will be presented at a luncheon during the 2004 National LCMS Youth Gathering in Orlando, Fla., July 24-28.
May 15 is the nomination deadline.
