You are welcome here!
Hello, and welcome to the UCC Youth Ministry page! UCC Youth is for students in grades 6-12 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!
Wednesdays | 6:30pm – 7:30pm Begins | September 14
Community Groups are an amazing way for youth to connect with deeper conversation during the week in smaller group settings by grade. This year the groups will be separated into 7th and 8th grade, 9th grade, and 10th-12th grade. Each group will meet at different locations throughout the year for this wonderful hour together. If you’d like more information, please reach out to Rev. Alison Fitzgerald.
Roots is a mentoring program for 6th Graders and 7th Graders that will resume again this fall. This program was designed to help incoming 6th Graders acclimate to being in the youth program, and this year we’re extending the opportunity to 7th graders as well! Each 6th or 7th grader is paired with a high school junior or senior in our youth program, and together they walk through the year together, learning more about each other, and having a whole lot of fun. If your 6th or 7th Grader is interested in this program, or if you’d like more information please reach out to Rev. Alison Fitzgerald.

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
