May 14 youth worship!

This worship is open to ALL middle and high school youth.

 

Calling all UU youth!

You’re invited to the Mountain Top/UURJ/UUJMCA’s May youth worship! We are heading for the home stretch with our five senses theme – what do you want this, your youth space, to look, sound, taste, feel, and smell like? In April, we explored taste – how does food build community? What foods mean comfort to you? This month, we’re talking about touch: What does a welcoming youth space feel like? What physical sensations make you feel welcome? Which sensations set your teeth on edge? What guidelines should we have in our space about consent? Please register by May 9 in order to receive your welcome packet for this month’s worship, including this month’s squishy fidget!

What to Expect!

The event will consist of half an hour of worship and ritual, followed by discussion and activity groups.

We’ll worship together, have fun, build community, and learn about our faith and ourselves.

Why?

To celebrate our youth and provide a space to create community.

and:

  • Provide the inter-congregational, spiritually supportive, community-building space for youth that they’ve been missing
  • Have conversations about white supremacy culture, racism, and childism with youth to parallel what is happening in adult TMT/UURJ space and model new, anti-racist culture and ways of being together
  • Have conversations about how youth would like to experience belonging and engagement in their congregations.  When we have a handle on the experiences and feelings of the youth, we will eventually be having conversations with the adults on youth belonging in congregations, too.
