For youth, we have a bit of a change going forward. Rev. Lise and I recently met with representatives of the Scituate, Cohasset, and Rockland (known as SciCohRock) Youth Group, and have decided to merge our groups to form SciCohRockWell in order to have a more active and vibrant youth group for our youth to participate in, as well as increase the interactions and communal work between UU congregations. We will be changing our meeting schedule somewhat, with the new schedule being posted here:tinyurl.com/SciCohRockCalendar
At their last meeting the group decided to title the conference PokeCON, with the art and theme for the conference based around the ideas of friendship, working together, and fun of the Pokemon stories. We expect over 70 youth from UU congregations in Massachusetts and Rhode Island to attend the January 27th-29th CON.
The First Parish of Norwell youth will continue meeting on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 5 pm in order to plan First Parish events and youth services. We are very excited about working together with our neighboring UU congregations.
These events build connections between churches, friendships, and can be an important spiritual experience for many youth. We require attendance at regular Youth Group meetings in order to attend conferences.
