Youth Religious Education

Youth Info

Our Youth Group meets after services in the youth room. We use the Beacon model of youth empowerment. Youth create their covenants, structure their meetings, elect officers, and determine their projects – all with guidance from trained youth advisors.

Youth advisors act as mentors to youth, modeling our principles in action, and encouraging healthy behaviors and interactions.

If you have a child who wishes to participate in youth group please make sure you register them for their RE class AND register them for youth group (two forms). Youth are required to participate in congregational life in order to attend youth group by attending services, or RE class. If your youth does not attend church and participate in one of these ways they may not attend youth group that afternoon.

If you have any questions you can ask Heather Arata, our Director or Religious Education or our Youth Advisor, Mary Bahr.

Youth Group Activities

Our Youth Group is a small group ministry for youth focusing on expression of Unitarian Universalist faith, developing youth leadership, and acts of service to the UUFG congregation and community at large.  Another key aspect of the Youth Group is the building of community within our UU youth. Kids often snack from Youth Group food supplies or provided snacks that anyone can bring, and all youth in this age range are welcome to come when they can.

Religious Education Registration

All children and adolescents involved in any Religious Education program at UUFG, including Youth Group, must have a current, updated, registration form filled out and on file.

A new registration form needs to be filled out annually or whenever a child’s living situation changes. Any time new people wish to attend UUFG Religious Education classes, they can register.

Parents, children and youth do NOT need to be members of UUFG to register for and participate in UUFG Religious Education and Youth Group programs.
