Within a safe and loving community, we help our youth grow up to be responsible and respectful members of the global community, able to act with compassion and to speak for justice.
Youth programs are offered to young people ages 12 – 19.
The youth program focuses on the 6 pillars of youth ministry: Building Community, Social Action, Worship, Learning, Leadership and Congregational Involvement.
Youth in grade 7 – 9 will be participating in Our Whole Lives throughout the year mainly on Sundays. There are a few additional weekend activities throughout the year. We are proud to offer this program which is led by training facilitators.
The OWL program is a blessing for today’s parents concerned about teen sexuality. It is our belief that honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives. For these reasons and more, we are proud to offer Our Whole Lives (OWL), a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities. Youth will need to enroll in the OWL program and parents should plan on attending a workshop in September. Check our Calendar.

Youth meet every other Friday for a variety of activities. The youth, with the assistance of capable youth advisors, plan their own activities. For more information about Friday night programs, contact Pamela at email@example.com
In addition to Friday nights, youth will be able to participate in social action projects, lead a Sunday Service and hold our annual Halloween Party Haunted House and St. Nick’s Pancake Lunch. Youth can obtain volunteer hours at a variety of UCM events throughout the year.
