Fall Kick Off

Calling all youth grades 6th-8th and 9th-12th!

Kick Off is a high-energy, fun-filled weekend to make new friends, reconnect with youth from lots of different churches, and get excited about the upcoming school year and all of the diocesan youth events on the horizon. We will play games, gather for worship, get creative, and spend time in small groups.

The theme is “Do It New” for 2021!

All youth 12 years old and over are encouraged to be fully vaccinated before attending diocesan youth events. This ensures that our fellowship can continue to be fun, intentional, and compassionate. Register here.
