8.      UNITED YOUTH CAMPS – Teen Friday Night Bible Discussions

Our live Bible Study program for teens begins Friday evening, and will continue each Friday evening for six sessions. The Bible discussion will be password protected, so it is necessary for all teens to get the password from their pastor before signing on--the password will be the same for all six sessions. Teens, your pastor may choose to email you this password or you may contact him. Please do not share the password with anyone, but be sure you get the password ahead of time. The Bible Study video and Zoom discussion begin at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central or 7 p.m. Pacific/8 p.m. Mountain (pick your time). Log onto uyc.ucg.orgat one of these two times Friday evening, beginning June 26. We hope these Bible studies and discussions will be a great way for our teens to learn about God and connect with each other.
