  • Bridging

    Figuratively/Literally on the Move? – Keep Connected!

    “Life is a Journey”, and, “You Can’t Take it With You”: True AND False Striking out on new adventures – whether moving around the block or across the country – also means leaving your youth group behind, where deep relationship and spiritual connection are built right in. And though you may miss the support youth groups provide, an exciting part of this transition is the opportunity to discover how to join with other UUs to express your faith in a new way – in your way.

Lee Edwin Chipps-Walton, a young adult and lay leader started coordinating their young adult program as a volunteer. Robin claimed Lee “offered us several years of growth for a program with consistency, involvement and connections – both within the YA community and…

    Millennials are Sticky People

    Adhere Them to Your Congregation   This excerpt of a post by Drew Dyck on the Aspen Group examines the trend of Millennials leaving the church, and says that neither making church more stylistically appealing or less religious will turn the trend around. However, research reveals some of the reasons Millennials stay with congregation. Takeaways follow. –Ed.     The Millennials are leaving the church in droves, and staying away.

One-third of Americans under 30 now claim “no religion.” There are 80 million Millennials in the U.S.—and approximately the same number of suggestions for how to bring them back to…

    Host a Scaffold Series Conference

    Young Adults Building Faith from the Ground up This fall Faith Architects kicks off with three to six regional leadership conferences called the Scaffold Series. We are currently seeking congregations or organizations to host these conferences. Some conferences may be hosted in spring of 2015.

Conference attendees will be trained in multi-generational worship, community building and justice organization, with an emphasis on bringing what they learn at Scaffold Series back to congregations and organizations in the wider denomination.   Won’t it…
