The United Church of Christ holds NYE national youth events every 4 years (the next being July 22 – 25, 2020 at Perdue University in Indiana) and Regional Youth Events (we are part of the Eastern group) every 4 years (the next being in 2022) – 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! Watch for youth fundraisers to prepare for attending NYE in 2020.
We will be having a Spud Lunch on November 11th, 2018 as a fundraiser for the next National Youth Event which will be held in July of 2020 at Purdue University. If your child will be between the ages of 13-18 in July 2020, they are eligible to travel with us and attend the event! If you are interested in being a part of that group, it is important that you be a part of the fundraising efforts, which are starting now! Please let Pastor Addie know if you are interested in going to National Youth Event so she knows who to keep in the loop as more information is made available!
