Planning is underway for the Eastern Regional Youth Event in summer 2018. This will be a gathering of over 350 United Church of Christ youth from Maryland to Maine!
The event is for youth who have completed 6th grade up to 2018 graduates of 12th grade. ERYE features dynamic worship and uplifting music, service work in the community, workshops on social justice issues, opportunities to network and grow in leadership skills, and time for recreation and fellowship on a beautiful college campus.
The event will be held at California University of Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh on July 19-22. The cost for the event is $350 per person which includes dormitory housing in double rooms for three nights, 8 meals from Thursday evening dinner through Sunday morning breakfast, as well as all programs.
The Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island Conferences are collaborating to provide bus service to the event. The bus fee is estimated to be an additional $125 per person. Participants may register as a church group with their own chaperones. Individuals in Connecticut may opt to join “CTUCC to ERYE,” a group that will be led by CTUCC staff.
