Middle schoolers and high schoolers 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! Throughout the summer, youth Sunday School is being taught by Kris White. Bible Study is from 9:45 – 10:45am and the youth are having a discussion-based study following Rob Bell’s Nooma video series. Youth can hang out and play foosball, pool, ping-pong, or one of many board games until worship at 11am.
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 True.
Every summer, the youth participate in a group mission trip with other churches. Past mission trips have included San Diego, Oklahoma, and Santa Fe. These trips help foster a posture of service with our young people as they give up a week to build ramps, repair decks and lead Kid’s camps. Keep an eye out for our next big adventure!
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 True.
