YPM YOUTH RALLY - PINE FOREST VILLAGE UMC RALLY

Over 150 youth and adults have come together across our conference to struggle together. There is one last rally offering teens a safe place to share their struggles and find hope and healing in Christian community. An adult youth leader training, "Helping Teens Struggle Well," which has received rave reviews, will also be offered.

There's only a little time and a few spaces left for you to register.

Registration closes Friday, March 3, for the final #thestruggleisreal Youth Rally - igniteyoungpeople.org.

We hope to see you there.
