Teens Are Talking At Emmanuel UCC

What does the Bible have to do with me? Why didn’t God do what I wanted him to? How should Jesus’ teachings affect the way I act? Why should I go to church? What happens when I die? People of all ages have questions about their faith and teens are no different. Teens especially can ask tough questions. It’s not always easy to find the answers, but it’s very important not to just dismiss them. That’s where Teen Talk, the Sunday morning meeting time for teens, comes in. By exploring our faith and developing an understanding of who we are and how we relate to our beliefs, we dig deep into the questions that face teens. Teen Talk at Emmanuel UCC is for anyone in 6th grade and above. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am to talk about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, how our lives can be influenced by them and how we can be an influence to others around us. Come to Teen Talk and find other teens who want to make their faith stronger, find some answers to hard questions and become better at dealing with ideas and things that pull us away from being Christians. Our first meeting will be on September 20 at 9:00 am.

Sunday worship service is at 10:30 am. Come, join us for worship this Sunday. We welcome everyone into our Father’s house.
