The focus of Youth Ministry at UPC is to create an open, warm, and loving environment where youth can be their authentic selves, grow in relationship with God, and each other. We are inclusive to all youth and empower them to be who God created them to be. This program serves youth from 6th through 12th grade.
Rather than live as individual disciples following Jesus alone (which we don’t think is really even possible), we want to live as a community of disciples, based on these two principles:
- In order to live as a community, we have to know each other.
- In order to know each other, we have to do all kinds of things collectively, such as learning, serving, worshiping, fostering friendships and living life together..
