Welcome to the CUCC Youth Group! We are a thriving, dynamic, and varied mixture of kind, insightful middle and high school youth who:
- are an integral part of our church family
- welcome everyone
- devote ourselves to forming and nurturing connections to each other and to God
- value laughter and curiosity
- share our gifts and our time generously
- work to keep anyone from being marginalized
- practice safe church policies and are dedicated to caring for ourselves and each other responsibly.
During this time of COVID-19, we are finding many creative ways to continue to be church to one another and to the community. We gather both on Zoom and in safe, socially distanced gatherings on the church grounds. We also stay in touch through snail mail, group texts and group emails. We have continued to provide opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, service, and ministry.
Whether creating interactive racial justice signs, providing leadership in worship, building an All Saint’s Day memorial walk, or writing and filming a Christmas pageant, we continue to look at how our faith connects to our lives and to share how those connections inspire us.
We are a welcoming community of equality and grace and embrace all ways of thinking about the Holy. We value authenticity and the knowledge that we are (each one of us) beloved. We practice demonstrating God’s love and being open to receive it. We acknowledge and own our responsibility to minister to others in our church family and beyond. We help one another to both celebrate the joys and cope with the challenges that life brings. We strive to love all our neighbors and to care for all of creation.
