Faith United Church of Christ has a youth group for youth in grades 7-12. The Youth Group has a lot of fun snowtubing in the winter, attending Bandits' games, working with the younger children, and offering their outreach support to the community through work at the soup kitchen and the semiannual Children's Clothing Exchange.
The Youth Group invites all youth, in grades 7-12, to join us in service to the church and community.
Through participation in the Youth Group we can gather to have fun with one another. Some previous activities are: Tubing at Kissing Bridge, attending the New York State UCC Youth Retreat, attending the Western Area Youth retreat, and having a movie night with great snacks. Check out our pictures in the photo gallery of this web site.
We hosted a luncheon at the UPC Soup Kitchen and participated in the Faith Church Community-Wide Children's Clothing Exchange. We helped clean up the church yard as a service project. We earned over $140 at a recent bake sale and $210 during a summer car wash. Our funds are used for youth group activites and mission projects.
This summer we will be taking a day trip to Kingdom Bound at Darien Lake in August. This event will provide access to all the fun at Darien Lake Fun Park and hours of Contemporary Christian Music.
