Welcome to the United Church of Christ in Keene Youth Program,
If you have been around, you might check out the calendar to see what is coming up. If you are new to us, you might have a few questions, so let me try to answer those.
The UCC in Keene is progressive Christian church located in Keene, NH (that one on the head of the square) we have a catch phrase that probably says it best “No matter who you are, or where you are on your journey, you are welcome here.” and we mean it. If you are a regular church-goer and you are looking for a new church home, we would love to have you. If you have never stepped one foot into a church, but are curious about this whole “Christian” thing, we would love to have you. And if you don’t know what you’re looking for, or even why you are looking for it…we would love to have you. You are welcome here, just as you are.
The UCC Keene Youth program is our youth group. We spend time together, learn together, do mission work together, travel together and hopefully discover together what our faith is all about. We are broken out into three programs.
The second group is the Middle School Youth Group. This group is for Middle School youth (6th-8th grades). They meet a couple times a month for some fun stuff, some learning and some local mission work. This year we are focusing on arts as a way of expressing and exploring faith. At the end of each school year this group takes a big weekend getaway trip.
The third group is the High School Youth Group. This group is for High School youth (9th-12th grades). We meet more frequently, for conversation, service and exploration, and we go on a mission trip every February (during the Keene school’s break). This coming year we will be going to Washington D.C. to serve the hungry and homeless community in our nation’s capital.
So, feel free to poke around this blog to see what is happening, and if you would like to participate, or would like more information please give me a call, or shoot me an email (or use the form below). I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
