Youth Fellowship Programs


There are three youth groups in the church. Kids Klub is for third through fifth grades, Junior High Pilgrim Fellowship (JPF) for sixth, seventh and eighth grades, and Senior High Pilgrim Fellowship (SPF) for ninth through twelfth grades. Each group meets twice a month on Sunday evenings from September through May. The meetings range from team building and service activities, to speakers sharing relevant stories and information. The groups participate in several community service projects and also sponsor fundraising events to help fund various mission programs and activities.

Our goal is to build relationships among young people, between young people and adults, and between each individual and God. We invite youth from the entire community to register in September and join us. If you can’t come to every meeting, no problem, just come when you can. Members are encouraged to bring a friend to any of our meetings, and as with our other ministries and programs, you don’t have to be a United Church of Christ, Southbury member to participate!
