Youth Programs

Ministry with Youth

We believe that every person has inherent worth and dignity, at every age and stage of life. Our youth programs for middle school and high school youth offer young people age-appropriate ways to explore their spirituality and build community with other youth. We focus on service, fun, spirituality and leadership with support from advisors and staff.

Our Whole Lives Programs (OWL)

‘Our Whole Lives’ is a ground-breaking sexuality education program for all ages. Written jointly by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ, the different age-appropriate programs aim to give our children and youth the tools they need to live lives embodying the values of self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, justice and inclusivity. In the 2020-21 church year we will offer OWL classes for middle school youth once it is safe for us to meet in person.
