Youth from across the association gathered at Plymouth Church UCC for a Martin Luther King retreat. This year youth took a page from the civil-rights era Freedom Schools, in which communities came together to teach their children important concepts that they weren't learning about in school. Our youth caught a glimpse of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of a just society by learning about some of the injustices of our day.
