What is Teen Talent all about?
Every other year the Church of God holds a Teen Talent festival — at the state level, and at the international level. We participated at the state level in 2017 and in 2015 we went to both state and international festivals.
There are many categories to choose from, and you can enter more than one: Art, Bible, Creative Writing, Drama, Music, and Multi-media. The purpose of Teen Talent is to help students Discover, Develop and Dedicate skills and talents unto the Lord. Here’s a link to the manual.
We’ll go again March 29-30, 2019. If you’re interested, register at the link below. Email Pastor Chris or call the church office at (540) 667-8017 with any questions you may have.
