St John’s respects that High School is a critical time of spiritual growth for many young people. Therefore, our high school programs are a little different than other R.E. programs. High school age members and visitors are welcome to join us at Sunday Service of participate in our youth group as best meets their needs.
YRUU – St. John’s High School Youth group
Our Senior High youth group is named YRUU, the Young Religious Unitarian Universalists. We meet every Sunday and welcome all high school students.
Our program is based on the components of youth leadership, community building, worship, learning and social action. We the members of YRUU run our group ourselves with the help and guidance of several adult advisors. Most weeks we meet for a discussion on a topic we have selected. We organize and present two Youth Services each year at St. John’s.
Several times each year some of us attend a “Con” at another UU church in the UU Heartland District (Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan). Each Con starts on a Friday, and we spend the weekend working on a specific topic, having lots of fun, and meeting other UU’s, with supervision and guidance from adults from the churches involved. We return from the Con’s on Sunday, having learned a lot, had a great time, and in a totally exhausted state.
