Don't youth need a safe, caring place where they can ask questions, share their growing pains, and explore their faith? Our group of youth, 6th grade-12th grade, gathers for fun, progressive Christian fellowship, service, and inspiration regularly.
We are an LGBTQ safe space. OWL, comprehensive sexuality education opportunities are also offered every year.
Our group gathers quarterly with Youth Underground, a multi-church progressive Christian youth group. We also encourage our youth to attend the United Church of Christ camps and retreats at Laforet camp in Colorado Springs. Youth can register through the Rocky Mountain United church of Christ website in the camps section.
Our youth are respected and encouraged to participate in the leadership of the congregation through their gifts of music, worship leadership, teaching, and service.
DIG education hour is offered at 9 a.m.
for youth and youth group normally meets on Sundays following worship.
is a journey in which children who are welcomed and celebrated in the life of
the church – commit to learn and engage their faith in order to become official
members of the church with all the responsibilities that membership entails!
Confirmation is about learning and asking questions, it is about the past,
present and future of the church and of our own faith stories. March 3-5 we
will be going on a confirmation journey called tour of life! This will be a
weekend confirmation experience as opposed to meeting one hour a week for 12
weeks – we will do the learning in a tour of our city learning all along the
way. If you have a child 12 or older who is interested in confirmation or if
you are an adult who would like to journey with a young person during this
sacred time as a mentor please contact the church office.
