This is the 25th year for Fire-Up! Wow! Below are six ways you can be a part…
Hey Troy UMC ~
What’s hard to believe is 2022 marks the 25th Fire-Up Conference! Through these years, thousands of students have descended upon Troy, IL to participate in this discipleship weekend. We have had Harvest lead worship music, invited great preachers, led small groups, taught seminars, provided meals, and called students to follow Christ.
The 2022 FIRE-UP CONFERENCE will be held at Troy UMC the weekend of February 25-26. Friday is from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm and Saturday will be from 9:30 am – 8:30 pm. The theme for the conference is AWAKENING and we’re praying that the hearts of students will be open to God’s work in their lives.
TROY UMC has not only been the host for the conference, but they have also pulled out all the stops to welcome, serve and lead during these weekends. Thank you for your investment into the lives of the next generation during this special annual event.
We know there’s a season for every event and one of these days, we will do something different, but for now, especially as we plan for this year with the ongoing pandemic, we want to keep the ball rolling and here’s how you can join us!
1. PRAY FOR THE CONFERENCE

3. INVITE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO ATTEND

4. DONATE SOME SNACKS & DRINKS
During the pandemic we’re expecting fewer students in person, however, we would still welcome your partnership in donating snacks for the weekend. Donations can include cans of soda (no orange or red), small individual bags of chips, bottled water, pre-packaged snacks / cakes / bars. You can bring any of this to the kitchen, marked Fire-Up, beginning in February.
5. HELP DURING THE WEEKEND
There are roles during the weekend to help with hospitality, meals, and small group leadership (which happens two times on Saturday). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. HELP DEFRAY THE COST OF THE WEEKEND
