Silver Ring Thing "Uprising" Purity Event

Sunday, February 21, 6 - 8 p.m.

This is a challenge to live bold and set apart from the celebration of immorality all around us. SRT defies the meet-up, hook-up, break-up mindset of today and inspires students to a pure life centered in Jesus Christ. This 2 hour stage performance incorporates high energy music, videos, skits, special affects, and comedy delivered in a concert-style approach with which teenagers can respond and relate. The event is presented by a team of peer-level students serving as role models and examples of the power and freedom in living out this calling. Their message is one of hope, boldness, and truth that's jam-packed with powerful speaking and personal testimonies. The program also proclaims the grace-filled message of the Gospel, going way beyond a call to abstinence to full life in Jesus Christ! Following the event, students who make a commitment to purity have the opportunity to wear a SRT ring as a symbol and reminder of their decision. They are connected to local churches for ongoing discipleship and growth while also being equipped through follow-up emails, text messages and devotional guides from SRT. This event is designed for teenagers but is also relevant to college and young adult ages. A parent's session is also held at each event to educate parents about what is happening in today's youth culture and how they can encourage and support their child's commitment to wait.
