ROCK 2021: Feb 5-7 is Postponed

ROCK, the Baltimore-Washington Conference retreat which brings thousands of United Methodist youth and their leaders to Ocean City each year, has been postponed.

 In response to the coronavirus pandemic and out of an abundance of caution to safeguard the health and well-being of the youth, BWC leaders have made the difficult decision to postpone ROCK from its currently scheduled dates of Feb 5-7, 2021.

 We plan on offering innovative and creative ways to engage youth with their faith, one another and the world. These exciting virtual, opportunities will be announced in early fall 2020. Arrangements are already underway for ROCK 2022 to be back in Ocean City.

ROCK 2020 Offering Continues to Benefit Mental Health and Wellness

The Baltimore-Washington Conference is committed to supporting the abundant health-mind, body and spirit-of young people. With your generous offering at ROCK, we will be able to expand suicide prevention and wellness resourcing for youth and those who love them. Many youth are afraid of acknowledging school, mental health, and life challenges. To reduce stigma and barriers, we are building online mental health resources on the following topics:

Anxiety | Body Image/Eating Disorders

Bullying | Depression | Relationships

Self Hurt | Social Media 

Substance Abuse |Suicide Prevention

Time/Stress Management

The following video highlights our ultimate hope for this work and our need for your continued support. If you wish to write a check, please make it payable to the Conference Treasurer.
