Youth 2010

Our UUCCI Youth Group is open any 7th to 12th Grade student in the Columbus Indiana area! Several of our members do not have parents in our congregation, and some are members in other faith traditions.

Our teen-aged youth are amazingly busy with school and activities. Yet some of them always find time for our bi-monthly Youth Group gatherings. Whether they come often or occasionally, our background-checked Youth Advisers are happy to see them!

We’ve had pure fun activities like skiing at Perfect North in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, hiking at “Touch the Earth” nature preserve, roasting a variety of foods over our on-campus fire circle, and bouncing around at Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Indianapolis.

Educational activities have included viewing and discussing films and documentaries. We have had artwork design and interpretation sessions, Trivia Nights, game nights, and philosophy classes. Pizza accompanies a lot of our Sunday evening gatherings.

Teen 1We have served the UUCCI congregation by cleaning up the grounds, selling snacks at Americana Concerts, and staffing a bike ride rest stop at the church.

Our service work has included yard work for people with health concerns, serving food at Hot Meal Sites for those with financial challenges, and cleaning cages and feeding animals at the Bartholomew County Animal Shelter. We have been to New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina relief work.

If you’re interested in joining us, let us know! Please contact Susan Burton or Dennis Baute!
