The Northern Ohio District has many opportunities for youth to gather together. Events are planned year-round and everyone is welcome! So bring your siblings, your cousins, your friends, your classmates, your church group, and anyone else who might be interested, because the more, the merrier!
Junior High: 6th-8th graders
Senior High: 9th-12th graders & first year out of high school

Christian Citizenship Seminar - April 24-28, 2021
Each year, Christian Citizenship Seminar is an opportunity for Church of the Brethren youth to gather and explore the relationship between faith and a particular political issue, and then act from a faith perspective regarding that issue. In 2021, CCS will focus on pursuing economic justice in response to the pandemic, wealth gap, and Jesus' call for simple living. This year's event will be virtual.
If you have any questions or would like to sign up, contact Jenny.
