FLUID 2019 YOUNG ADULTS GATHERING

2019 Theme: ECHO

In the beginning, God created. 

From the dark came the light, from the surface came the sky, from the water came the land.  He set the Sun in its place and the Moon on its axis. He spoke life into the plants and the animals; let them run free according to their kind.

Thus the Heavens and the Earth were finished, and all in their vast array.” – Genesis 2:1

This was God’s plan from the onset – a world rife with potential, where we were invited to care for and enjoy the fruits of God’s labour.

But in our sin, we faltered and strayed. We fled from God and sought our own ambitions.  We corrupted what we were given, and cursed He who gave them. Humanity needed redemption, and to fulfill that purpose God sent His Son – Jesus Christ, a reverberation of God’s unwavering promise.

Through Him, we are called to renew God’s creation – rebuilding and restoring what He had intended. We are called to recover God’s hope for the world.  To ECHO God’s plan in this generation.

On March 2nd 2019, join a multitude of Young Adults from across Canada as we delve into the Book of Genesis, worship collectively, and encounter God together.

I am interested in bringing a group to Fluid. What do I do?
Great! We highly recommend experiencing Fluid with your young adult leadership team, small group and community. Because we want to accommodate all groups, large and small, we recommend that you register on-line by March 1st, 2016. Please note that due to limited seating and selling out in previous years, group rates may sell out earlier than this date.
The event says “young adults” in the description. Is there an age restriction and what is a “young adults” ?
While there is no age restriction in attending Fluid, our aim is to create a learning environment and explore topics that are mostly suited for young adults (18 to 30ish).  That being said, we definitely encourage pastors and leaders who lead young adults to attend as well, preferably with your group. For those younger than 18 years, we suggest you to consider attending some other fantastic events (i.e., Change Conference) that are geared towards high school.

About Fluid

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” – John 7:38

Jesus promises that when we believe in Him, we experience a tidal wave of living water within us that cannot be contained. Not only are we renewed, loved and comforted by Him, we inevitably become the very instruments of renewal, love and comfort to others.  We become fluid.

flu·id” (n) is defined as someone who isn’t static, but a person who is moving and taking the shape of whatever she flows into. In a similar way, Christ calls us to be that living water whether we are a social worker, student, pastor or a stay at home parent. Where ever we are and however we do it, He calls us to reflect the glory of God in more worshipful and fulfilling ways in any given moment. To that end:

On the first Saturday of March, we gather together to collectively learn what it means to be fluid, corporately pray for our generation and, with one voice, worship the name of Jesus. Hear God’s call, join His movement, be the change in the very places you reside – become fluid.
