High School Youth Group
East Shore Youth Group is a lively, vibrant community of teens, ages 14 to 18 years old and in high school, who enjoy sharing life’s many experiences with each other. Youth Group provides exciting events in a warm, nurturing environment for all who wish to participate. We offer a safe and encouraging environment for youth and adults to grow in healthy, trusting relationships. We grow souls through multi-generational sharing, playing and learning. The overall program follows the guidelines set forth by the UUA to provide youth with experiences and opportunities in the following categories: worship, learning, community building, social action, leadership and youth-adult relations. The Youth Group activities are planned and implemented by the youth and adult leaders with the guidance of our Youth Programs Coordinator. Amanda Alice is our Youth Programs Coordinator, she may be contacted at youth @ esuc.org.
This year’s high school youth group will have an opportunity to examine how living our Unitarian Universalist faith calls us to make ethical decisions even though to do so is often difficult. In this and future workshops, participants work together to untangle situations where conflicting ethical standards make it hard to discern the “right” decision.
June 4 – tbd, youth group will meet at 11:30
June 11 – Multi-generational Worship Service followed by All-church Barbecue (no youth group)
- Flower Communion Sunday: Bring a flower to the service to share with the East Shore community in our annual flower communion. This tradition celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. East Shore’s high school youth group will help celebrate this multi-generational event.
June 18 – Summer RE Begins!
Children will begin in the sanctuary each week and will then move to Room 201 in the Education building for an 8 week summer curriculum on the seven principles “We Believe”
Youth may opt to attend the “We Believe” class, attend worship service, play board games in room 202 or join our Youth Group advisor Amanda in “Digging Deep – garden ministry” outdoors in the sun. They are required to stay in the group they chose for the entire Sunday but may switch groups from week to week.
