University Christian Church loves teenagers!
Youth are included in the worship service. High school youth regularly participate in worship as Junior Deacons. Middle and High School youth lead an entire worship service in the spring.
Youth Sunday School classes are discussion based focusing on the integration of biblical, theological, and social issues.
Youth in grades 6-12 meet on Sunday afternoons for singing and ringing. Youth ring and sing in worship several times a year, sometimes with the adult choir, and participate in a Christmas musical or play in Advent.
YOUTH FELLOWSHIP GROUPS
Youth Groups (grades 6-12) meet weekly on Sunday afternoons for fellowship, study, or service events. The group gathers in homes monthly for Bible study sleepovers and goes on a week long mission trip in the summer, funded primarily by the UCC congregation.
UCC youth raise about $1,000 each fall to buy Christmas toys for local children in need. Recent mission trips were to Tennessee, Arizona, and Arkansas. In 2007 we went to Washington, D.C.
