Open to young people in 9th through 12th grade (ages 14 – 19), the UCWC Youth Group is a vital part of our congregation. The group is bound together in trust, providing freedom to freely share thoughts, hopes, dreams and concerns. Along with providing many opportunities for fun, the Youth Group is a springboard for community service, and for leadership opportunities within the group, the congregation and our District.
Many of the youth particularly enjoy attending Youth Conferences (“Cons”), held at congregations throughout our local District. A team of adult Youth Advisors helps guide the Youth in their activities. Each of them completes 15 hours of Youth Advisor training prior to working with the Youth.
Our Youth Group is well known in our District – since 2004 it has won 12 YES! (Youth Empowering and Sustaining Congregation) awards, a unique achievement.
