Preview of the 1967 Young People’s Convention

As the host society for the coming con­vention, Hull’s Young People’s Society wishes to present a short preview of the events to take place.

The convention dates are August 17 through August 21. For the convention we have chosen the Theme “Soli Deo Gloria” taken from the text I Peter 5:8-11. The subtopics are: 1. “The Idea.” 2. “The Basis.” 3. “The Expression.” The theme song will be Psalter No. 197.

When you come to Hull, arrive at the church on the comer of third and Walnut. There will be a committee at tile church to give you lodging assignments. Registra­tion will take place Thursday evening at the church.

On Friday business meetings will be held. We will have the mass meeting Friday evening at the community building in Hull. Rev. G. Vanden Berg will be our speaker. Immediately following this meeting a get acquainted party is scheduled.

Saturday will be “Outing” day. The day will begin with an early bird tour of Iowa farms. We will spend part of the day in the Hull Park. This park features volley ball, tennis, and swimming. An outstanding feature of the day will be the “Greased Pig Contest.” Plan to take appropriate clothing for the occasion. The remainder of the day will be spent in Newton Hills, a park of a neighboring state. Seminarian Dale Kuiper will be our speaker.

On the Sabbath Day let us all gather in the House of God to Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness. In the evening we will have a “Convention Singspiration.” Special numbers will be rendered.

The final day of our convention will be no less eventful. We will begin the day with a pancake breakfast. In the afternoon the east-west ball game will be played. We will be privileged to listen to an interesting debate. The topic for the debate is Re­solved that juvenile delinquency is the parents fault. The banquet will conclude our convention. Rev. R. Decker will give the final speech.

Our Hull Society is working hard to try and make our convention enjoyable and we urge all of our young people to attend.
