(most Sundays at 11:00 am in the meeting house)
Youth Group is a special place where teens develop close bonds and friendships that are grounded in acceptance and the practices of respectful, accountable and mutually agreed upon guidelines of the covenant they create together to shape their community. Adult advisors provide caring trustworthy leadership that gives the group structure and support while the youth take on responsibility for much of their own self-governance, youth-led programming and social justice projects. Youth participate in worship within the group and as a part of the whole congregation.
Youth are invited (encouraged) to participate in the wider UU community that hosts youth conferences, or “cons” throughout the year. These are 2-night weekend events led by the youth supervised by adults when the youth bond, develop leadership skills, and have a great time. Adults attend to ensure safety and keep the kids fed (and provide the candy).
Adults: You’re Invited to Join the TUCW Youth Ministry
A team of people who love to hang out with youth and are happy to spend time with them on Sunday mornings to help their meetings run smoothly. This involves singing up for particular Sundays, the number and frequency is up to you.
This ministry team works with Rev. Shelly to plan, organize, and coordinate the program and support our youth leadership development. Training is provided.
Please feel free to reach out to Nate Pawelek to share your past experiences and discuss your future participation in these special opportunities to serve our congregation. Thank you!
