National Youth Event Scholarships Available
The quadrennial UCC National Youth Event is coming up in July in Orlando, Florida, and for the first time, families are invited to participate along with teens. Check out all the action by clicking here.
Already, the Maine UCC Resourcing the Local Church Committee has been asked to help fund our youth to go to this event. Because we wish to make sure that the youth in all our churches have an equal opportunity to attend, and because we wish to treat all interested youth fairly, the Committee has set a special deadline to receive all applications for scholarships to the National Youth Event.
That deadline is Monday, February 15.
Applications should come from the Christian education ministry of each church; no applications from individual parishioners, please! Evidence of fundraising on the part of the young people who wish to travel is absolutely essential. Application forms and further instructions are available on the Maine UCC website.
