How can I spiritually prepare for this event?

Our physical journey to Nauvoo will start July 20th however we invite YOU to begin your spiritual journey today.  

This journey will allow you to better Come to Know (CTK) Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, strengthen your testimony of the restoration and prepare you to enter the temple of the Lord.  

Come to Know

We will provide a monthly “Come to Know” publication.  Please READ it!  Each month will have a different spiritual theme taking us through Church History from The First Vision to Carthage Jail.  It will offer suggestions for personal, family, leader and YM/YW application.  It will also have a reading chart to keep us aligned in our goal to read the Book of Mormon together.

Here are three simple activities that you can diligently work on between now and July to spiritually prepare for our trip.

        Power Hour
        Monthly Nauvoo themes
        Personal Worship (Prayer & daily scriptures)

Power Hour

You can do most of your Family History and Duty to God or Personal Progress by dedicating just one hour each week. We call this hour “Power Hour” because the power of heaven will be poured out on you as you faithfully work on these things:


        Duty to God or Personal Progress
        Scripture mastery applications


Just think how much you will grow spiritually and how powerful the spirit will be in your homes now and in Nauvoo if every youth in our stake diligently sets aside a Power Hour each Sunday.

Duty to God or Personal Progress

One great way to spiritually prepare for Nauvoo is to increase your commitment to completing your Duty to God or Personal Progress. As you work between now and July, we encourage you to incorporate church history and the attributes of faith, obedience, sacrifice and service into your completion of these programs.

Monthly Nauvoo Themes

Through your ward youth leaders, each month we will provide you with spiritual and historical tools to help you prepare for the Nauvoo experience. As you make Nauvoo part of your mutual activities, your family home evenings, and your personal study you will arrive in Nauvoo ready to partake of the wonderful spirit of learning and testimony which will attend us.

Personal Worship

There is no substitution; personal prayer and daily scripture study are fundamental to a spiritual journey. There are times when you need to Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R).

Who can attend?

 Adventure Nauvoo is for youth in the Young Men’s or Young Women’s programs of the Arlington TX Stake who will be 14 or older. Youth who graduate from high school in 2017 may attend

How were adult leaders selected?

All adult leaders will be prayerfully selected and invited to come under the direction of the Stake Presidency.

 

Can I bring non-member or a friend from another stake?

Due to the logistics and expense associated with the Nauvoo trip, participants who are not members of the Arlington TX Stake will not be able to attend.

 

Can parents or other family members attend?

Should your family choose to come to Nauvoo while we are there, they should not expect to participate in activities planned for you, tag along on the planned itinerary, or keep you from these events.   Family attendance may distract you from the full life changing, spiritual experience that High Adventure Nauvoo will provide.  Please plan your family vacations at a different time.

 

Can I meet up with my family at the end of the Nauvoo Trip to leave on our family vacation?

Activities during the travel to and from Nauvoo are part of the trip, and we encourage you to participate.  However, it would be possible to meet up with your family before the group leaves Nauvoo. Advance arrangements with stake leaders will be necessary.

 

If I have a conflict, can I come for just part of the time in Nauvoo?

We would ask you to commit to attending the entire Nauvoo Trip due to the complexity of making arrangements, providing accommodations, and ensuring for the safety of over 120 youth. Also, great activities are planned for each day, which you won’t want to miss!

What if someone (who meets requirements to participate) moves into our stake after the registration deadline?

It will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Participation will depend on availability.

 

Do I need to bring money?               

You may bring some spending money for snacks and souvenirs.

 

Will there be bathrooms on the buses?

Yes, and we will stop occasionally for bathroom breaks.

 

Will the cabins be air-conditioned?               

Yes!

 

Can we bring snacks on the bus?                   

You may bring WATER and snacks.

Can I bring electronic devices?

Cell phones are permitted as long as they are used in an appropriate manner and at appropriate times. They may be used to take pictures, access scriptures, read books, listen to music, etc., especially on the long bus ride, but should generally be turned off/put away during any group discussions/activities, and Sunday meetings. *Schedule will designate when phones are NOT permitted.
