Your rides can pick you up at UCC in the upper parking lot, outside of the Youth Building.
WHERE IS OASIS? - Fortunately for us, the conference is right here in Manhattan! The event will take place on Manhattan Christian College's campus.

WHO IS THE SPEAKER? - Zach Anderson is the Lead Pastor at Restore Community Church - Waldo Campus in Kansas City, Missouri. Zach is married to Kelsey, his best friend and beautiful wife of 5 years who is currently in nursing school. They have on child so far: their 90 pound fur-baby German Shepherd mix named Berkley!

BAPTISM SUNDAY - November 11



We will not have Middle School programming that morning. We won't meet for The Way at 9:20am but we'll resume the week after (Nov. 18) We encourage youth to attend one of our main services with family and/or friends. Our desire is that middle schoolers would participate in worship, hear the message of salvation, and celebrate the decisions that are made for God and expressed in baptism that morning.

However, we ask that middle schoolers who are interested in baptism, express their interest to Craig or one of our Middle School Youth Coaches in the lobby on Baptism Sunday. When they come to the lobby, we will have them fill out a Baptism Interest Card. From there, we will follow up with students and their parents. We will hold our own separate Baptism Celebration for middle school students on Wednesday, November 28th, during Youth Group.
