District and National Events

We participate in Atlantic Northeast CoB District events as much as possible when offered. These are opportunities to mix with other nearby Church of the Brethren young adults through weekend retreats, service projects, camp events, etc.

We also encourage participation at the Church of the Brethren Denominational level as well. These activities are ways to engage with other young adults from across the nation and even overseas sometimes.
