OCU plans Virtual Youth Service Day
For nearly 40 years, Oklahoma City University has hosted United Methodist youth for an annual Youth Service Day and welcomed them to campus. As with everything else this past year, COVID-19 has altered plans.
This year’s event will connect Methodist youth in a virtual setting, and youth groups from across the Oklahoma Conference are invited to submit videos ahead of the gathering. Each group that participates will receive a gift package with a variety of OCU-branded goodies and snacks for watch parties.
“In a time full of challenges, we hope to highlight the ways God is still working through our state’s youth,” said Rev. Elizabeth Horton-Ware, director of OCU Religious Life.
Youth groups that would like to participate are invited to email Horton-Ware for a full list of details and instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions are due Feb. 15 and will be open for votes between Feb. 16 and March 5.
