This years’ theme they followed what the National UMYFP provided which is entitled “Pro-claim” a play on words putting emphasis on the two words – “pro” and “claim” which aims to affirm and claim God’s love and grace on every individual.
Aside from lectures and small group discussions, they conducted a seminar on Climate Change which gears the young people to be aware on current social issues. The young people from each churches got also the chance to give tribute to their pastors in an activity called “Workers’ Night”. The youth offer songs, messages in appreciation for their church workers. They were also games and movie viewing which inspires the young people to claim what God has planned for them and in which they will proclaim.
