CIY MIX 2023

This summer, we’re headed to CIY MIX in Holland, Michigan on July 29th-August 4th! If there’s an event to be a part of, this is it!

MIX is a 5-day, middle school event designed to be high-energy, creative, tons of fun, and relevant to your world right now. Students will be challenged through interactive worship, dynamic speakers, fun & challenging small groups, and community building, discovering ways that God will use them to be a greater help to the world.


This is a great event whether you've been going to church your whole life or you aren't so sure of this whole church/Jesus thing.


All middle school students are invited to attend—those who will be going into 6th-8th in Fall 2023. (Current 8th graders will attend CIY MOVE with our high schoolers)

This year, CIY MIX registration opens Wednesday night, March 29th at 9:00pm, after youth group. If you register within the first 24 hours, you get a $35 discount off of the Earlybird price!

**Registration/Refund Policies**

No refunds of the $65 deposit will be given. In addition, no refunds will be issued for registered/paid spots that are canceled after July 15th. This includes but is not limited to cancellation for reasons such as sickness, injury, anxiety, scheduling conflicts, etc. The only way we can refund any money to you is if another student can fill the spot of the canceled registration. The reason for this is that UCC will have already paid in full to Christ In Youth for your student's spot and we will not be refunded that money.
