Welcoming Teens from Norwell, Scituate, Cohasset, and Rockland
Channing Church high schoolers are invited to be part of our collaborative youth group with Scituate, Cohasset, and Norwell churches. Our gatherings are every other(ish) Sunday from 5-7 hosted by one of the participating churches. We start each time together with lighting the chalice accompanied by a reading that a youth chooses, followed by listening to a song that one of us selects. We all listen together respectfully in silence, then check in with each other sharing what is going on in our lives and discussing what we choose.
Youth Group is a time and place where teens can completely be themselves and are valued for their diversity and individuality, just as they are. This is a time to be real, explore identity in all its forms, support each other, listen, share, hang out, and also make great things happen. Also, snacks.
Youth Group allows teens to put their UU values into action, planning outings, projects, and conferences. Our advisors and youth leaders take great pride in the strong communities that are fostered and the leadership skills our youth develop. We encourage spiritual and emotional growth for all youth. The youth lead activities, plan and lead worship, run and perform at a coffeehouse, workshops, and outdoor activities! Teens build self awareness, confidence, and friendships as they make the world a better place just by being themselves...together. Of course, teens are always welcome to join us in Sunday service!
