YRUU: Ages 15 -18 (approx. 10th-12th grade)   


Please register here!

Our youth group empowers teens to create a welcoming and supportive group environment that supports social, emotional, and spiritual growth. YRUU engages in religious education, worship ritual, service activities, social activities and personal growth opportunities. Participants experience group planning, goal setting and collaborations which foster leadership skills. Overall, the program aims to facilitate the youth’s development of a Unitarian Universalist identity that will guide them in living their values throughout their lives.

This group meets from 5-7 PM most Sundays. On most 2nd Sundays, the group attends worship service, followed by lunch and discussions with the youth director and one of our ministers.

18 September - First YRUU meeting! 5 - 7 p.m. in Sanctuary B. Come ready to meet new friends and old! 


YRUU First Overnight - Friday September 30 6:30pm - Saturday October 1 9:00am

The calendar was so full we couldn't even fit our "kick-off" overnight in the first week or two of the program year! Fun, games, discussion, meeting advisors new and old, exploring the new areas of our expanded building! Parents, we need your help for this activity to truly be overnight - looking for volunteers beginning at 11 p.m. on the 30th! 

Overnights are our FAVORITE activity (am I right??), but require parental help. 

Please RSVP today via ydir@uucolumbia.net
