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.

The Middle and High School youth groups will be volunteering at Community Servings in Jamaica Plain on Saturday, February 8 at 1pm. The mission of the organization is to "actively engage the community to provide medically tailored, nutritious, scratch-made meals to chronically and critically ill individuals and their families." While there, we will learn more about why and how they serve the community the prepare meals for those in need. Learn more at servings.org. Contact email@example.com for more information.
On Sunday, February 9, our children and youth will be leading us in a worship service of their own creation, centered around Jesus' parables. Jesus’ parables teach us lessons through stories. In a broken world, God calls us - good Samaritans and tax collectors alike - small as we are - to be mustard seeds in the world. These stories woven together with our own stories have the power to move mountains! We invite you all to join us as we learn from our incredible children and youth!

This winter and spring United Parish will offer the lifespan sexuality education program Our Whole Lives (OWL) for young people in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. With a curriculum written by the United Church of Christ and Unitarian Universalist Association, OWL provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
This information is relayed in accordance with the values that OWL strives to promote: self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, and justice and radical inclusivity. The program recognizes and respects the diversity of participants with respect to biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and disability status and builds a learning environment where all experiences are included.
We will be holding a meeting for interested parents on January 12 directly after worship in the Parlor. Please reach out to Amy Norton at email@example.com with any questions.
