Our Youth Group Family will meet together throughout the weekend for The Laurel Highland Games (some crazy games from our games team), Worship Led by our Youth Band, and Messages from our Special Guest Speaker: Ethan Cieply from YWAM Pittsburgh!

In addition, there will be many times during the weekend, to connect in our Small Groups for fun, discussion, special times designed to help you grow closer together as a small group!
