Regional Youth Council

RYC group picture - Sept  2013The 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 Doug Rights, Director of Youth, College and Young Adult Ministries, or our current RYC President, Chris Underdal.

Moravian Daily Texts


Monday, November 20 — Psalm 129
Daniel 6:19–7:22; 3 John

You must neither add anything to what I command you nor take away anything from it, but keep the commandments of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 4:2

Jesus said to them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.” Luke 8:21

Lord, it is so easy to interpret your holy word with our own biases and miss the point you were trying to make. Guide our hearts and minds to understand your calling for us and to act on that calling. Amen.
