THE PARTY

We know... another Zoom on a Saturday night? But what else are you going to do?! Our friends at Trybal Gatherings have found incredibly talented artists who have put together an experiential celebration that allows you to celebrate in your own style! Choose from creative, fun, and interactive Party Rooms (electives) that will engage and entertain you, maybe teach a new skill, and meet our big, wonderful family of friends and relatives in the process.

 

Micah had each of you in mind when choosing these offerings. Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, there’s something for everyone. Our hope is that you will walk away feeling part of a community that transcends beyond the screen. And maybe, just maybe… a prize or two.

Thou shalt have fun on a Zoom!

- Micah, the Guest of Honor
