Worship, prayer, mission activities and time spent in small groups filled the schedule at Assembly 2015, held July 25-29 at Hendrix College in Conway. The week included a visit from Bishop Gary Mueller, who joined the Senior High Assembly for one of their worship experiences.

Amid all the activity focusing on growing closer to Christ, serving others and just having fun, the youth raised money for Youth Service Fund (YSF). During Assembly alone, more than $1,000 was raised by youth, for youth. The money will provide grants for youth-oriented projects or scholarships, and now is the time to think about how your youth ministry might benefit from YSF funds. Download an application form at www.accym.org/ysf; applications must be submitted by Oct. 1.
