Join us for the Middle School and Senior High Youth Fellowships.

The following is a list of Save- The- Dates for Youth Fellowship
and their families. Mark your calendars.

YF Calendar

In Sunday School news, children in grades Pre-K through 7 will continue with New Testament learning about the life of Jesus. Children, mostly through various parables, like Jesus Feeds the 5000 and Jesus and the Children. Youth in Grades 8 – 12 will be answering the question “What is heaven like?” and “Do cremated people go to heaven?”.

Saturdays also continued to provide a fantastic opportunity for children to deepen their faith and learning with the Junior Choir.  WUC Junior Choir continues to meet from 10 – 11 am on Saturdays in the Choir Room.  We invite you to come celebrate with us, and allow our youth the opportunity to develop and share their faith with music and song.

 Our Youth Fellowship program continues to grow and thrive, offering our youth various opportunities to engage in  fun, friendly and faith building experiences. Both YF groups have also received a special invitation to enjoy a concert at St Cecilia’s featuring Joseph Reed and Synergy, from 7-8:30pm on Feb 28th . For more details on these and other YF activities in February, please see the Branchline, the attached calendar, or contact Jeanne Westcott.

Please consider yourself personally invited to make a difference in a child’s life by sharing your time and talents in support of the youth of Wilbraham United Church. The Education Commission is always looking for adult volunteers to support our many regular and special event offerings. Some opportunities include: Sunday School teachers and substitutes, Youth Advisors, Retreat and 30-Hour famine chaperones, snack makers, planning committees, Vacation Bible School support, and much more. We can utilize any skills and time commitments available. Please feel free to contact Carrie Kagan to express your interest and/or learn more.
