UCC youth “clean up” at Great Lakes Regional Youth Event

What does it look like when 250 young people from across the Midwest converge in one space to complete a project? “Absolutely marvelous!” said the Rev. Roger Dart, the disaster response coordinator for the Illinois Conference UCC.

The young people Dart described were participants in the United Church of Christ’s Great Lakes Regional Youth Event at Elmhurst College, in Elmhurst Ill., July 5-8. He got to watch them in action, as they put their faith in action, assembling more than 70 Clean-Up Bucket Kits for Church World Service. Click here for the full UCC News story.
