YOUTH RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Youth RE

Youth Religious Education (RE)  is our group of Sunday morning education classes for students 7th–12th grade. We offer a safe and inclusive environment in which students can further develop their personal values, affirm their authentic self, and explore their connection to the community. Our lessons offer deeper understanding of the world around us, and they promote social action and critical thinking. Past themes have included: Qualities of a Justice Maker; Changing the Climate; and Building Bridges: A World Religions Program. This year we’ll further our learning and growth with Understanding Racism. Register for classes today.

Youth Group 

Youth in grades 7–12 will gather with caring adults in a nurturing space to 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.

Some of our activities include:
• Volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank on a regular basis.
• Participating in the United Against Poverty Quack Attack 5K.
• Supporting our LGBTQ+ community by marching in the Pride Parade.
• Attending the Orlando Women’s March and BLM (Black Lives Matter) marches.
• 2017 Civil Rights Road Trip

We meet on the first and third Sunday of the month from 12:30 to 2:00 pm.
