YAC 2018 – We Are One

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”  
Ephesians 4:3-6

More than 1,000 East Ohio Methodist youth and adult leaders gathered June 8-10 for Youth Annual Conference (YAC) 2018.  Worship, fellowship, business, and mission opportunities during YAC centered on the theme We Are One, based on Ephesians 4:3-6.
