For Middle and High School

You are welcome here!

Hello, and welcome to the UCC Youth Ministry page! UCC Youth is for students in grades 7-12 and is usually divided by middle school (Chi Rho) and high school (CYF). Fellowship, faith development, and fun are a few things we focus on with UCC Youth and we do so in a variety of ways! See below how we celebrate community while learning more about our faith!

Sunday Evening Youth Groups

Sundays | 3rd Floor | 

Youth Groups are an incredible way for our 7th – 12th Graders to connect and have a great time each week. The timing of our Youth Groups and Snack Supper will also coincide with Handbell practice for those that are interested in participating! Additionally, here’s what to expect each Sunday:

CYF (9th-12th Grade) will meet for youth group from 5:00pm – 6:00pm

SNACK SUPPER will be held for all grades from 6:00pm – 6:30pm as an opportunity for all of us to gather for a meal

CHI RHO (7th-8th Grade) youth group will meet from 6:30pm – 7:30 pm

We hope that you can join us as we spend time building community, having a lot of fun together, and spending time with the sacred!

Youth Sunday School

May 7 | 9:00 am, TEN:10, and 11:00 am Worship Services 

All youth age 7th-12th are invited to organize, participate, and lead in worship on Youth Sunday! We will begin planning this service on April 16th during our Sunday night Youth Groups, and will continue through April 30th. We get to decide the theme, and how we present what’s important to us as an offering to God so we sure hope you and your leadership skills can join us for the preparation of this meaningful worship service!
