Youth Group
9th-12th Grades
Select Sunday mornings during the worship service and Sunday nights from 6-8pm

Youth Group is a co-ed Sunday evening program that offers high school youth a safe and welcoming space for social interaction and spiritual development. It is a place where youth deepen relationships with one another, build community and establish life-long friendships. Youth Group is primarily youth-led, as they design and facilitate most activities. The program balances service learning, social action, youth-led worship, inquiry into important issues and good old fashioned fun. All are welcome. Let Ryan Hurd, Director of Spiritual Development, dsd@usguu.org know if you would like to be on the youth email list.


Coming of Age (COA) every other year, will be offered 2019-20
9th and 10th Grades
Most Sunday mornings 10:30-11:30am

Coming of Age is the Unitarian Universalist way of marking the passage from childhood into adolescents. It is offered every other year. Throughout the course of the year, students are challenged to deepen their understanding of UUism, the work of USG and their own beliefs. Sunday morning meetings will invite students to dig deeply into the ideas and ideals that are central to their lives.In keeping with the fourth UU principle, “we affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning,” it guides them through the very UU process of examining all the available information, talking about it, and then making their own decisions about what they believe (now). The COA year includes opportunities for service, fellowship, fun and adventure. The culmination of the program is the youth -led Coming of Age service in the spring when the group will present their faith statements, or credos, to the congregation. If your youth is interested in joining this class, please contact lead teacher, Treva Burger, trevawb@gmail.com
