Dear Young People’s Society Members,
It is with regret that after much discussion the Federation Board, along with the recommendation of the Steering Committee of Georgetown PRC, has decided to cancel the upcoming 2021 Young People’s Convention due to restrictions and health concerns pertaining to the ongoing pandemic. This decision was made on the basis of the following grounds: 1. The inability to properly plan due to the uncertainty of restrictions that may be imposed in light of the ongoing pandemic 2. The current strict restrictions on large gatherings in the state of Illinois 3. Social distancing and mask requirements would not be conducive to the purpose of a young people’s convention. These requirements would likely be imposed at any potential convention location. The Federation Board would like to express much gratitude and appreciation to the Steering Committee of Georgetown PRC for all of their dedication and the countless hours that they have put into planning this convention. May we be reminded that God’s ways are higher than our ways, and that these events are all in accordance with the sovereign will of our God and for the good of us, His people.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
The Federation Board
