ADVENTIST YOUTH SOCIETY
In 1879, two young Adventists, Luther Warren and Henry Fenner, established a local Adventist society for boys in Hazelton, Michigan (girls were soon admitted!). Twelve years later, a 16-year-old young man in Wisconsin, Meade MacGuire, formed a similar society.
At Union College in Nebraska in 1893, church members established a Young People’s Society of Christian Service. The goal of this new group was “to secure the increased spirituality of the young people, their enlistment in all missionary activity through existing channels of work, and their elevation to a higher plan of living and thinking.”
About the same time, A. G. Daniels was forming a youth society in Adelaide, Australia, and Ellen White was appealing to the General Conference from Australia to organize the work for the young people of the church.
During the first decade of the 20th century, the Church responded. At a meeting in Mount Vernon, Ohio, July 10-20, 1907, the new Young People’s Department of the General Conference choose the name, “Young People’s Society of Missionary Volunteers” and the name was adopted at the General Conference Session of 1909. Soon “MV Societies” were springing up in churches all across the world.
We meet every Sabbath in the church at 4:40PM.
