We also offer a great Youth Program outside of Sunday School. The youth program welcomes and includes all youth (6th-12th grade) and provides a safe place for them to develop spiritually and emotionally in an environment filled with love and fun. Through worship, age-appropriate lessons, and the development of personal relationships with our youth, we help them learn to serve others while supporting each other the way that Christ taught us. UUMC Youth meets at 5:00 p.m. on Sundays in the fellowship hall. For more information, please visit http://www.uumcyouth.org.
