Chrysalis is the Metro D.C. Synod Senior High youth ministry weekend event held annually the first weekend in December at the Northern Virginia 4-H Center in Front Royal, VA.

Chrysalis strives to bring our senior high youth to a greater discipleship in their faith life through:

  • Small Group sessions – a place to meet new people, build new relationships, process the material presented in the Large Group and E-group sessions, and explore the theme in a more intimate setting, facilitated by a Youth Ministry adult
  • Large Group sessions – times to bring us all together to build a sense of Christian community, introduce themes, speak to the entire community, make music together, worship, and have some fun
  • E(xperiential)-Groups – mid-sized sessions made up of several small groups in which youth have an opportunity to experience the event’s message in an active, participatory, and hopefully refreshing new way
  • Family Time – during which congregational groups gather to touch base with familiar faces at the end of each day.

Chrysalis 2017: Story will be held Dec 1-3.

Registration materials are posted on this website and emailed to congregational Youth Ministry contacts in mid-September. We also mail a postcard to congregations, alerting them that registration materials are available.

If you would like to be on the email list, are interested in helping with the planning of this event, or have questions, please contact Barbara Harner.
