I’m New! Volunteer Connect 

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!

UCC Calls Kyle Powell as Director of Youth Ministry
 
A warm UCC welcome to Kyle Powell as he accepts the call to be our new Director of Youth Ministry. He has a passion for creating spaces where students can truly be themselves and engage in meaningful, safe, and edifying conversations.  Holding a Master of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology at SMU, Kyle has served in various churches and roles over the past decade. He has always led with a focus on sharing the love and grace of Christ in ways that foster deeper relationships with one another and with God. Kyle is particularly excited about collaborating with a team committed to continuing the work of loving God and loving our neighbors UCC has been hard at work doing, this while still being committed to learning and deepening our understanding of the world around us and the Church’s role in the world.

UCC Youth in the Pulpit

 
Choosing to preach to a congregation listening closely to every word might seem like a daunting task.  Five amazing UCC youth did just that in May. They volunteered for the assignment. We asked them to describe the experience.
