2016 State Youth Event a Success
Above, 2016 SYE Planning Team
The spirit was very high at this year's New York Conference State Youth Event, which focused on the theme Heart Over Hype from Romans 12:2. The Saturday Keynote Speaker was Rev. Shirley Pudney Eilers and she presented on how listening to our call to be faithful can lift our community over the Hype of society. She used the song Love Train by the O Jays as a mantra. The offering was taken to support the Kevin Guest House in Buffalo.
