The United Church of Christ holds NYE national youth events every 4 years (the next being in 2020) and Regional Youth Events (we are part of the MARYE Mid-Atlantic group) every 4 years (the next being in 2018) – watch for details. These events are held every 4 years and bring UCC youth together for 4 days of praise music, worship, challenging speakers, fun and much fellowship!
Our next UCC youth event will be the UCC Mid-Atlantic Regional Youth Event, to be held in July, 2018, bringing together UCC youth from the Mid-Atlantic and New England states, tentatively to be held in New York State – watch for details as they become available.

This past summer, our delegation of 16 youth & chaperones attended the UCC National Youth Event at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It was a fast, intense week of high energy praise music, powerful speakers, purposeful workshops & above all fun & fellowship meeting new friends from around the country & catching up with friends from past UCC gatherings. Again thank you to all at St. John’s who contributed to the funding of this trip.
