CRY Cabinet Holds Final Planning Meeting for Festival

The Christian Regional Youth (CRY) Festival youth leadership team met for their final planning meeting in preparation for the 2017 CRY Festival this past weekend at Webster Groves Christian Church in St. Louis.  The Cabinet members meet four times throughout the year at various regional locations to plan, pray, prepare for the upcoming CRY Festival, develop leadership skills, and serve in the host communities.



This past Friday evening and Saturday morning, the youth and adult sponsors spent four hours in service at both WGCC and Webster Rock Hill Ministries.  Together, they packaged laundry detergent, planted bushes and weeded in the community garden and rain garden, cleaned up the yard and compost bins, assisted in the food pantry and distribution center, and much more.  



The C.R.Y. Festival is July 17-20th at Drury University in Springfield, MO.  Youth from across the Mid-America Region who have completed grades 8-12 are welcome to attend.  More information and registration links can be found at  We hope you'll join us at C.R.Y. this summer!!
