Youth Rally moves online to Zoom
Rally to feature music, messages and meeting of young minds

Due the COVID-19 pandemic the Eastern PA Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) has decided to reset its annual, planned Youth Rally as a two-day, online event, using Zoom videoconferencing. The dates and times, chosen by the CCYM youth, are Friday, August 21, from 8 to 9:30 PM and Saturday, August 22, from 3 to 4:30 PM.

We will have dynamic speakers, uplifting music and small group discussions on topics ranging from self-esteem and body image, to relationships and connecting with God, to prayer and strengthening our faith.

Our CCYM youth are excited to use technology as we engage other youth in discussing, experiencing and learning about our faith. We will enjoy soul-moving music by great Christian artists, and we’ll hear dynamic speakers who will challenge and help guide us in our various faith journeys. Learn more...
