High School Religious Education

OBUUC High School Aged Ministry (High School RE) follows a nine-month-long calendar meeting in George Bray Hall (church lower level) September through May during the second service 11 a.m. – 12:20 p.m.

High School RE: Grades 9 – 12:
The goal within our religious community is to:
– Provide a bridge between childhood and adulthood
– Facilitate discovery and appreciation of personal gifts and talents, a joy of living and a belief in life’s potential in a setting which accepts diversity and exploration
– Identify what participants, as adults, will need from a church and why they would choose to be a part of one.

This group runs with the assistance and support of several adult advisors. Youth Group activities come in all shapes and sizes — discussions, social service activities, “movies with a message,” weekend retreats and social outings. Our youth plans and presents Youth Sunday, an annual All Church Sunday with a theme of significance to the young people themselves. All activities involve adult advisors.

Teaching Team Aides: Often teens gain as much from guiding others as they would from enrolling in the Religious Education Program themselves. It is possible for teens to help children in the Children’s Program 1 or 2 Sunday mornings a month during the 11:00 service. Teen aides must be in grade seven or above and will participate in teacher training sessions. Interested teens should contact DRE Leann Pomaville.
