What to expect

We suggest arriving 15 minutes early or so to provide time for you and your group to find their seats and perhaps use the restroom before the rally begins. An adult sponsor from your group should check in at the table in the first room to give an attendance count from your church. There will be congregational singing in addition to group games and skits to enjoy at the beginning of the rally. Each night there will be either a Sword Drill Competition or a Bible Quiz from a preannounced passage of Scripture (both will be held toward the beginning of each rally with the team members being dismissed from the rally for a short time). The scheduled speaker will preach a Bible sermon, urging salvation and challenging the young people and youth workers to a closer walk with the Lord. An offering will be taken for the speaker and then the rally will be dismissed. The rally may then be followed by a group activity as scheduled.
