In our denomination, people are considered "young adults" (or YAs) when they are between 18 and 35. In our community we have opportunities to gather in groups of all ages, and we also have times we can "huddle" in smaller groups with people who share a trait or interest. Some young adults create community within our congregation, our western region, nationally, and/or continentally. Try the hastags #uuya and #yaya across your platforms to see what's going on.
Check out our Faith Development programs for adults of all ages, here. If you're a parent, you might want to connect with other parents through our Religious Exploration community (join our Facebook group for parents, here, and our eNews for parents here). If you're a person of colour, you're invited to join our facebook group here, and consider our monthly Theme Discussion group for people of colour. There's an American facebook group for youth and young adults of colour, here. And we have Facebook groups for Young Adults: our local group, and a national group.
Read on to learn about our plans for young adults this year.

CUC Offers Pastoral Care Support to Young Adults

Our three Pastoral Care Team members are ministers with experience providing care and supportive listening, with a special interest in supporting young adults through the many ups and downs of life. Pastoral care can be provided by phone, through Zoom video, or by text.
