YRUU or Why Are You You?
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 Sundays. On 2nd Sundays, the group attends the 11:00 AM Sunday service followed by a lunch and discussion with 9th grade Quest class.
