Youth host Family Movie Night June 2nd-  Join us for a night of fun.  We are watching the movie “The Goonies” 7-9:30pm.  Dress up as your favorite pirate and bring a dish to share.

 

Offerings

  • We understand the needs of our youth are different from children and adults and created programs specific to those in 6th through 12th grade.
  • We strive to create an inclusive setting, where questions can be asked, topics can be discussed, and stories can be shared.
  • Youth learn leadership skills, group participation, and inclusivity by attending our programs, and grow in their understanding of God and the world around them.

Youth Group Meetings

  • This is held four times a year.  During the meeting teens plan mission trips, fundraising events, future retreats, and recreational activities.
  • All youth between the ages of eleven and eighteen are invited.

Youth Retreats and Youth OutingsYouth - Retreat Sleeping Bags

Youth grades 6th through 12th are invited to participate in local and conference youth retreats.  Once a year, Pilgrim Congregational UCC offers a retreat based on a theme.  During the weekend, youth have opportunities to grow in their faith, exchange ideas, participate in mission projects, and form lasting friendships.  We also have bimonthly youth outtings, where teens can socialize and participate in mission projects.
