Kids and Youth

Children in preschool through those entering 5th grade are invited to dive deep into faith with us as we hold a special Vacation Bible School! University Christian Church and University Avenue Church of Christ are proud to continue their long-standing tradition of partnering together to provide a fun, educational, and faith-driven VBS experience for the children of our congregations. Our program will run on Thursday evening, Friday evening, and Saturday morning, and will feature important messages about God alongside fun games, music, activities and meals. Whether you are a VBS pro or first time attendees, we hope that your family considers joining us this year!

UCC offers Sunday School classes for kids of all ages, with a nursery, preschool-aged class, elementary class, and a combined Jr. High/High School class. These classes begin at 9:30 each Sunday morning. During the worship, all children are invited forward for a special message geared specifically for them and preschool-aged children are welcome to attend a special children’s service in lieu of the sermon. A childcare worker or older youth leads them to and from the sanctuary, and they will meet you back in service during our time of communion. All children are welcome to join us for worship at the parent’s discretion.

Our youth group is a combined group with students who make their home churches at University Christian, University Baptist, and Congregational Church of Austin. Meeting after church each Sunday during the school year, this group regularly practices serving the community and is committed to learning deeper about how to apply Christian ethics to their lives. From studying current issues like immigration or gun control to debating the best way to eat cake batter, our students are bright, welcoming, and fun-loving. Regular events include lock-ins, mission trips, pool parties, and random acts of singing, and each year our youth plan and lead a full worship service for the three home churches. To get involved with the youth group, contact Topher Endress.
