High School Meetup: THIS SUNDAY, 1:30 pm (Founders Hall)! Teen Youth are invited to meet after coffee hour for lunch and “vibing.”

Activities for High School Teens – We have lots of great opportunities this spring for your High School student to participate in youth group trips, meetings, events and OWL! Please take a moment to review the “save-the-dates” and complete our sign-up genius to let us know which events your teen might like to participate in (and how you might help if you are so inclined). You can revisit the survey if you are unsure about some answers now. Please complete as much as you can!

Anti-Racism Workshops for Adults and Teens: March 28 and April 4, 8:30am-4:45pm (Peace Hall) – Teens and adults are invited to participate in this series of two day-long anti-racism workshops.  High school students will attend with adults in these sessions. For more information, please email [email protected].

Graduation Service – If you would like your teen to be honored by the congregation during our May 3 graduation service, please contact Tryst Chagnon.

Parent Meetups – Interested in getting together with other parents who have children in your child’s age cohort while your children play together? We are gathering interest for age-banded parent meetups for PreK, Lower Elementary (grades K-2), and Upper Elementary (grades 3-5) for conversation and fellowship.  If you are interested, please sign up here.

UUFR Youth Choir, Sundays, 12:15-12:45pm (Music Room) – Rehearsals take place every Sunday following our church service. Open to all interested youth ages 5 and above. Choir will perform contemporary music with a strong message of peace, hope and community building. A great fun learning experience for our young members! Contact: Scott McKenzie.

Virginia Beach, VA, Youth CON: April 17-19, 2020 – UUFR 9th-12th graders are invited to a Youth CONference, a weekend gathering of UU youth and advisors. The CON is filled with a variety of workshops, activities and good food in a safe environment. Youth participate in activities, share with new friends in small get-to-know-you groups, contribute to times of fun and reflection and grow spiritually through worship. All youth must be accompanied by an advisor. If your teen is interested or you would enjoy being a Parent Facilitator, please contact Tryst Chagnon.

Remember that parents have access to an extensive Soul Matters resource packet on the theme each month.  February’s theme is “Resilience.”  The packet is full of questions, games and activities that can help parents enforce the theme at home. Please use password UUFRsoulmatters to access this amazing resource. For details about this Sunday’s programming and other family news, please check out This Week in Parent News every week, our UUFR Parents Community on Facebook, and our Family Ministry Monthly Newsletter.
