The UCC General Synod will take place in Milwaukee, WI, June 21 - 25, 2019 and the Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut Conferences are collaborating to sponsor a trip there.
Youth at Synod is for young leaders ages 13 to 18 who want to experience the vibrant diversity of the wider church.
Teens from all over the country will participate in worship and plenary sessions, attend hearings and track resolutions, and join in mission work to serve the greater Milwaukee area. Synod is an opportunity to nurture advocacy skills around justice issues.
