Program Description

During the 2017-18 program year, we’re offering a Small Group Ministry program to Youth in grades 6-12. This program fosters deeper awareness of UU values, while encouraging youth to explore their own ideas about some big theological and spiritual concepts. As part of this exploration, youth are expected to commit to regular attendance and maximum participation during the program year (September to May), and they’ll be supported in their endeavors by a team of Youth Leaders and Mentors.

Sundays

The Youth Group will meet two Sundays per month (on the 2nd and 4th Sundays) from 11:00am – 12:30pm. Both meetings are held in the Youth Room, in the back corner of UUFA’s Administrative Wing. For the full schedule, please visit the YOUTH CALENDAR page.

Upcoming Events

Rites of Passage Retreat- Youth in grades 6-12 are invited to gather for a weekend-long retreat at Camp Kiwanis, located north of Danielsville, Ga. Youth can meet at UUFA at 6pm to carpool out. During the retreat, youth will have the opportunity to connect with their spirituality though nature, focus on and share their dreams, and make masks for Halloween! Retreat ends after breakfast on Sunday, with youth returning to UUFA by noon. Retreat fee is $20 to help offset rental, food, and supply costs. RSVP to Kelli at dre@uuathensga.org by Sunday, October 16.

Youth Cons at the Mountain –  A Youth CONference is a gathering of Unitarian Universalist youth and advisors from congregations all over the southeast (and sometimes beyond!) for a weekend program filled with a variety of workshops, activities, good food, a safe environment and warm, cozy cabins. Youth participate in all the activities, share with new friends in small get-to-know-you groups, bond during free time, contribute to times of fun and reflection and grow spiritually through worship.
