The Diocesan Youth Commission hosts its  retreat, the  DYC Retreats,  twice a year. They are hosted at Camp Mikell the second week of December for middle schoolers and the first weekend of January for high schoolers. This year's theme is Where is the Love? The theme is based on our Diocesan Youth Purpose Statement "we believe in forming disciples by sharing the all-inclusive and unconditional love of Jesus Christ." 

The focus of the retreat is to bring the fun of Summer Camp into an abbreviated winter session. We even have Summer Staffers up to chaperone the weekend! DYC is always an exciting weekend that includes music, worship, morning program, afternoon activities, a dance, and plenty of fun!

Resurrection will again be supporting the annual White County White Christmas Project (aka Angel Tree) this holiday season. Beginning this Sunday, 11/17, we will have angels on the tree in the nave for selecting boys and girls of various ages with their gift wishes. 

Participating shoppers will have until December 8 to shop for their angel(s).  All bags are due back on that Sunday. We will collect them and take them to the collection point.

Please consider supporting this very special ministry/outreach opportunity again this year.  May the spirit of Christmas be alive in our hearts as we bring cheer to those less fortunate then ourselves!

For additional information, please contact Katie Lynam (706/809-8024; or Ray Gregory (828/361-8993;
