Youth Group: Exploring Faith, Feelings, and Issues of the Modern World
Starting September 13, 2020, Youth Group and Families Together will be offered each Sunday over Zoom. To receive the Zoom link, sign up for the RE Weekly News.
9th-12th Grade Youth Group, Sundays, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Young Religious Unitarian Universalists (YRUU)
Soul Matter’s Youth Group resource is not a curriculum, but it does offer tools to help youth leadership build their own experience. Each month’s packet components support “whole person” learning, with sections focusing on the different ways we engage with the world: head, heart, hands, body, spirit/soul, and community. Here’s an overview of these holistic packet sections:
- Getting Started (engaging with the theme through community)
- Spiritual Practice (engaging with the theme soulfully)
- Discussion Starters (engaging with the theme with your head)
- Express Yourself (engaging the theme with your hands and creativity)
- Fun & Games (engaging the theme through your body and experiential learning)
Each week, two youth leaders and two adult advisers will take the lead in guiding the youth group through the activities they have chosen. The weekly meetings will also allow youth a time to socialize and connect as a community.
Families Together: All Ages RE, Sundays, 11:15-11:45 a.m.
During this family ministry time, we will explore our faith and the church’s monthly themes, and connect with other families in the church community. Kimberlee will guide these interactive sessions, offering ministry and sharing ways for families to build religious education into their home life.
Each week, we will invite families and church members to participate as featured guests, by lighting the chalice, sharing a story from their life, or leading a song, game, or activity. We know that families are children’s primary religious educators, and that faith formation is grounded in the home; Families Together will offer a medley of ways for families to enrich their daily lives and stay centered in their values.
