Due to the winter storm (and a lot of snow!), we have moved Young Adult Weekend to March 8-10. Your safety is our primary concern, and right now it’s been advised that travel be limited. Please call Brittany with any questions at 928-910-7002.

Balancing a life as a young adult can be difficult. Maintaining good grades in school, working hard to be successful at your job, and keeping up with your relationships and social life is demanding.

Join us here at UCYC Feb 22-24 for Young Adult Weekend (YAW) – a weekend full of teaching, worship, fun activities, community, but most importantly a weekend to rest.

Young Adult Weekend is an incredible event to encounter Jesus with a community of people that are the same age as you, and are living out similar experiences.

Young adults are often forgotten or overlooked. We want you to know that you’re not alone.

  • Bedding
  • Warm clothes

  • Bible, pen, notebook


Between both studying and working, I never seem to have time for resting and God. YAW was the perfect escape from my overwhelming schedule and it provided much needed connection time with God.” Sarah

It was so fun to be there with young adults. It was a very refreshing weekend.’ Melissa
