Children & Youth

We have Sunday School classes for kids of all ages, with a nursery, preschool-aged and elementary classes on the second floor, and a combined Jr. High/High School class on the third floor. Classes begin at 9:30 a.m. During the service, all children are invited forward for a special message geared specifically for them and then are led by a childcare provider to a classroom for age appropriate programs. They return to the sanctuary before the service is over. All children are welcome to stay for worship at the parent’s discretion.

Vacation Bible School

UCC and University Avenue Church of Christ are proud to continue their long-standing tradition of partnering together to provide a fun, educational, and faith-driven VBS experience for children (ages preschool through the 5th grade) in our congregations. Our program runs once each summer on a Thursday evening, Friday evening, and Saturday morning, and features important messages about God alongside fun games, music, activities, and meals.

Youth Group

Our youth group (middle school through high school) meets Sundays after worship for study, service and fellowship. Our youth join with students from Congregational Church of Austin and University Baptist Church most Sundays, and for lock-ins, retreats, and mission trips. We study current and faith based issues, discuss the struggles and pressures of being a teenager, and even debate the best way to eat cookie dough. Our students are welcoming, supportive and fun-loving.
