Regional Youth Council

rycimage2The Regional Youth Council (RYC) brings together youth from our Moravian congregations to plan provincial events, develop themes and programs for summer camp, and enjoy times of worship, fellowship and fun.

Each church in our province has the opportunity to have some of its Senior Highs serve as representatives. The purpose of the RYC is to be a “connector” between Moravian youth and youth groups, doing whatever it can to promote unity and friendship among Moravian youth as they live and grow as followers of Christ.

If your church is not currently represented, contact Hanna Jackson, RYC Coordinator, or our current RYC President, Carter Gentle.

The commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes. Psalm 19:8

Jesus said, “The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” John 6:63

Dear Lord, we ask your blessing upon our churches today. The week ahead is a special one that provides the opportunity to remember the story of Holy Week—the journey Jesus took to the cross. Help us draw close to you to remember. Amen.
