Young Adults in Church (10th thru 12th grade)

The Young Adults in Church (YAC) class facilitates our older youth to enter into their call as disciples, active participants and ministers of the Church. The group meets for coffee, discussion, fellowship, and service. YAC teachers challenge the students to use their gifts and talents both within the United Parish community and beyond.

MARCH
Posted: Feb 1 2017 - 9:54am

On their Winter Retreat last weekend, our Youth Choir and Carolers began the creative task of staging portions of “March,” their dramatic presentation examining a history of oppression, from biblical and American slavery, to the Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movements.

As the presentation will center around acts of Godly protest, one of the first tasks the children accomplished was the making of their own protest signs, pictured below. What poignant messages come from the minds of our little ones!

They also practiced, and created their own words for protest songs from the Civil Rights Movement, tying the thread of oppression through the millennia in language we can all understand.

On Sunday, February 12, the children and youth choirs and church schoolers will offer this dramatization in worship @ 11am in the Sanctuary. Come watch and experience their creative understanding of our history, unfolding in scripture, song, and story.

Special thanks to Merle P., David R., and Deb W., without whom none of this would be possible!
