This free youth event is for grades 6th – 12th and will be a special night of worship with national speaker Molly Sanborn. Molly (a.k.a. The Cheeseball Chick) loves to laugh and makes it her mission to help others find joy even in the midst of tough times. She uses real life stories and powerful illustrations to discuss the importance of integrity, identity, and intentionality when it comes to relationships. Her story will inspire youth and her bold approach might make them blush, but the truth she shares about God’s plan for relationships will leave them equipped and encouraged.
