Youth

 

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!

Age Groups
Junior High: 6th-8th graders
Senior High: 9th-12th graders & first year out of high school

Due to COVID-19, some youth events will be held virtually. We are monitoring the situation for when in-person events can be safely planned, and those events will practice safe social distancing.
