Eighty-six youth and youth leaders braved the snow and wind to attend the Lewisburg District Youth Rally Sunday, January 25, at Wesley UMC, Bloomsburg.
Lead by a full team of fifteen Young People’s Ministry members and the Rise Worship Band, attendees worshiped, played, ate, discussed, and danced the afternoon away. Everyone had a fantastic time GROWING ON their walk with God.
