The purpose of the youth ministry at UBC is to meet the social, emotional and spiritual needs of teenagers in grades 6-12 in a Christ like manner. Through small group Bible studies, monthly socials and ministry events, youth are provided with opportunities to learn how to live Christ centered lives. Youth meet every Sunday morning for Bible study during the church wide Sunday school time. Monthly socials include events such as youth lunches and game/movie nights hosted in various homes. Many teens participate in some of the ongoing ministries in the church but there are opportunities for the youth group to lead in ministries as well such as with our annual Fall Festival. The group also travels to Anchorage each year over spring break to participate in “Avalanche” a statewide evangelism conference for youth.
