Young people are vital to the present and future of the Union Congregational Church. The youth ministry here provides young people in our church and community with a place to grow in their faith in God, and their relationships to one another and our congregation. In addition to having at least one gathering a month we plan a Youth Mission trip for them every year.
Youth Ministry—Winter/Spring 2018
Welcome to the Winter / Spring schedule for Youth Ministry at our church! All events are open to kids grade 5 and up (EXCEPT the Youth Mission Trip which is grade 6 and up). You are welcome to invite friends.
We hope you will join in—making friends at church is making friends for life!
February 11 Walk with and for the Homeless/Common Cathedral
Meet at church 7:30 a.m. – Return by noon
The Winter Walk is a two-mile march around the Boston Common during one of the coldest months of the winter, shoulder to shoulder, as a housed and unhoused community. After the Walk, we will gather on Copley Plaza for a breakfast and to hear stories from our homeless community.
Be a part of something important that is making a real difference in the lives of the unhoused in Boston. We will receive sponsoring donations at Coffee Hour on January 28 & February 4.
