Dear Parents, Guardians, and Youth Grades 6-12 of Union Cong:

We are pumped for the 2017-18 program year! It’s been a wonderful summer- we had a fabulous youth trip to Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. But we missed everyone we didn’t see, and we can’t wait to meet newcomers and our incoming sixth grade class!

We’ve thought a lot about creating a year of programming that boasts dynamic options while staying consistent and conveniently-timed.  Please read on for a summary of the coming year.

With gratitude,

Lindsey and AJ


Youth Group- 

Grades 8-12: Meets most Friday nights. Typically, on three-day weekends, we take a break from youth programming so families can travel and so we can rest. Most Fridays we will meet at the parsonage across the street from the church, or in the Vincent Building basement, aka the Youth Room. On typical Fridays, our schedule will be:

7:30-10pm pizza and fellowship for 8-12th graders

Grades 6 and 7 will meet once monthly on a Sunday evening from 5-6:30 for pizza and games. Our next meeting is Sunday, March 11th from 5-6:30 in the Vincent Basement.
