For students 7th-12th grade. This year we will use the UUA Tapestry of Faith curriculum Building Bridges: A World Religions Program. It is a story-based program that is age appropriate, roughly chronological, and shows religious evolution over human history. Additionally, the Youth RE students will attend many field trips to various worship centers in an effort to deepen their understanding of this dynamic world in which we live as well as broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search. Online enrollment is open, so register today.
Youth Group & Jr. Youth Group
Youth in grades 7 through 12 will gather with caring adults in a nurturing space to deepen their understanding of self, build bonds with peers and adults, articulate their values and spiritual beliefs, and engage in service both inside the congregation and in the wider community. We meet on the first and third Sunday of the month from 12:30 to 2pm. Online enrollment is open, so register today.
The next Youth Group event is volunteering at Second Harvest on Saturday, Dec 3 from1-4pm. Register below.Second Harvest
