5th-12th graders are invited to meet in the Youth Lounge on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. The lounge is located just inside the alley entrance of the Sanctuary building, and is full of cool games and cozy chairs! Taught by Eanes ISD educator, Renee Suttle-Field, the youth study a variety of different topics from Lectio Divina, to scripture blackout, to church history, and everything in between!
Collaborative Youth Group
Throughout the school year, UBC youth participate in a collaborative youth ministry with the University Christian Church and the Congregational Church of Austin. The youth spend Sunday afternoons together, eating lunch and rotating between service activities, Bible study, and fellowship activities. This collaborative project also hosts Lock-Ins, Youth-led worship and other fun activities! For more information contact Associate Pastor Stephanie Cooper.
Cultural Immersion and Service Learning Trips
There is much to be learned from immersing ourselves in cultures different from our own. Every summer, the youth travel to Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico to work with the Ghost Ranch Youth Service Corps. The trip offers opportunities for service and learning among the indigenous Native American communities in New Mexico and a chance to disconnect from our busy lives to immerse ourselves in the Holy landscape of northern NM.
Youth Camp and Mid-winter Retreat
Students who have completed 6th grade are also eligible to attend Southwest Baptist Youth Camp (SWBYC) in June! This camp is transforming and packed with fun activities. SWBYC also sponsors a Mid-winter retreat in January. Youth leave Friday afternoon and return Sunday afternoon. More information is available by contacting Associate Pastor Stephanie Cooper.
