2022 Youth Advent

How do you experience God? Is God close or far from you? What is the world waiting and hoping for this Advent season? (For youth grades 6-12)

Advent is a time when we wait for the God who is always coming, ready to enter our hearts. We will explore where we each find the sacred in our lives and in our world, and where we long for God to come and heal us.  As we do, we will play a lot of games, share food around the table, and of course, have fun!

Join the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania Youth Ministry for our Advent Lock-In where we will create sacred space for the light of Christ as we approach the longer and darker days of winter ahead. 

This begins on 12/2 at 7 p.m. and ends on 12/2 at 4:30 p.m.
