Mission Hills UCC has a Youth Group for teenagers in 7th through 12th grade. Our diverse group includes teens from our church families, from other churches, and several friends who are not involved in organized religion at all. Everyone is welcome here!
In our Sunday morning meetings (during or immediately after the church service) we are exploring the Christian faith, and asking what it means to live a good life. Some of the group that attends regularly on Sunday are considering confirmation next June – a formal commitment to following Christ’s teachings and joining the church.
The larger group at our monthly Friday evening meetings, social events and trips joins us in a commitment to social and environmental justice. We all share a desire to make a positive change in our world and an interest in other cultures.
