Opportunities for Youth & Young Adults
Hear the hopes and prayers of HCUCC youth and young adults shared in online gatherings of the 198th ‘Aha Pae‘āina in October 2020.
United Church of Christ's National Youth Event is held every four years. This 4-day event is celebrated as the largest denominational gathering. Often bringing in thousands of youth, this time together is centered on faith, reflection, encounter, justice, community building, and leadership.
The 2020 in-person NYE at Purdue University has been postponed to June 27-30, 2022.

LEARN MORE + APPLY
YZ (pronounced “wise") Literature is wisdom from the young, Generations Y and Z to be more specific. This isn’t your basic news. Starting in 2020, Page 9 in every issue of The Friend will be dedicated to the art, songs, poems, prayers, letters, stories, thoughts, and more, of young people shining, witnessing, and reflecting light. This isn’t necessarily just for young people, rather it’s by young people who are not only the future but also bearers of Good News today. See what other youth are thinking and feeling, learn more about how you can share HERE.
