Time: 10:14 AM - 10:14 AM
Location: Ocean City, NJ
During our weekend in Ocean City, NJ we spend time worshipping, hanging out, playing, and growing spiritually together. This year's theme is Embodied and focuses on how we can affirm and celebrate the ways in which every part of us - spirit, soul, body - is made in the image of God. Youth will explore what self-care means for them and how it's just as important as loving their neighbor - as Jesus commanded.
