The UUSA Youth Group will meet throughout the year — usually on Sunday mornings twice a month. This summer when Rebecca interviewed the youth there was general agreement that they wanted to worship and do service outside the building. We have a lot of youth talent and leadership and we are looking forward to what develops!
So far this year we have taken part in the CT River clean-up, baked cookies and helped Rev. Frado set up for her special Halloween Service, we have made clay chalices, we’ve de-briefed after the election over large cups of hot beverages, we learned about a youth’s adventure abroad, volunteered at Not Bread Alone and that’s just some of what we’ve done.
Through fun & games, shared experiences, and open discussions, the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst Youth Group will develop a community where we feel welcome, welcome others, and find our true selves.
