Youth Faith Development Ministries
In addition to Sunday classes for 6th-8th grade youth, we offer two Youth Groups with many extra activities.
6th - 8th Grades – Jedi Academy
Using Star Wars as modern myth, we will explore Unitarian Universalist identity and spirituality from a new and unique perspective.This active class will engage mind, body and spirit. This is a pilot program designed by Faith Development Director Jessica Gray. At the end of the year, participants will have the opportunity to undergo the Jedi trials and be knighted as Jedi.
BYKOTA – 6th-8th Grades
Our Junior High youth group meets once per month from 9 a.m-10:15 a.m. In their meetings, they check-in with one another and plan for a variety of social activities and service projects. BYKOTA meets in the “Bride’s Room” downstairs.
YRU2 – 9th-12th Grades
Our High School youth group meets each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon (except on the Sundays they are attending Worship together). The YRU2 program is based on a balance of worship, youth-adult relations, community building, social action, learning, and leadership. They also get together for outside events. YRU2 meets in the Youth Lounge.
