Winter Youth Retreat: January 15-18, 2016

alathea-middletonSoutheast and Southern Conference youth and leaders are invited to come together at the Blowing Rock Conference Center in the Great Smoky Mountains for a weekend of worship, service, snow, and fun as we take time to build relationships and nurture our faith. This year we will consider the question asked in the Gospel of Luke, “Who is my neighbor?”

Special guests for the weekend include Rev. Waltrina Middleton, the National UCC Minister for Youth Advocacy & Leadership Formation and Alathea, an acoustic, americana-folk, singer-songwriter, harmony-driven female duo from the mountains of Tennessee (

The Winter Youth committee this year is Lacey Brown (Southeast Conference), Sharon Wheeler and Elizabeth Schiemann (Southern Conference).
