ROCK 2018 – January 26-28, 2018

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11

ROCK is a powerful and fun-filled weekend in Ocean City, MD. The event allows youth and adults to take a step back from their busy lives and learn about the amazing love of Jesus Christ. It is an awesome experience for folks to more fully connect with God and their friends while listening to great bands and speakers. You will leave ROCK renewed and ready to spread the word about God’s great love for us.

ROCK is designed as a retreat with a focus on presenting the Gospel message in an exciting, culturally appropriate way for young people (and now adults, too) to be exposed to and have an opportunity to respond to an invitation to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Offering to benefit UMCOR: Every year at ROCK, youth make a tremendous impact through their Sunday offering. This year, the offering will go to UMCOR, to support the United Methodist response to recent devastating hurricanes, wild fires and other disasters. See and share the video.

Registration now open!
