Mystery Pals begins February 16th

Mystery Pals is a multi-Sunday event in which children and youth are anonymously (it’s a Mystery!) paired up with an older person (a youth or adult). Pairings are based on shared interests, and participants learn who their Mystery Pals are only on the final Sunday.

Sing up here!

March 6th Open Mic for All

The Teen Faith in Action Leadership Council invites you to save the date for our splendorous 2020 Vision Party on March 6th at 7pm right here at OUUC. It’s an open mic fundraiser with a suggested donation that goes to countering food insecurity and homelessness. Bring board games and baked goodies as you see fit. There will be plenty of things to do for all ages. Bring your fabulous talent, or your enjoyment of watching others do so. We look forward to having you there!

February's Theme is Resilience

Big picture

This month the theme is “Resilience”.

Resilience is interesting, because it is defined as both strength and flexibility, the ability to withstand pressure and the quality of bouncing back to integrity and wholeness after a pressure or deformation.

Resilience is also a major focus of parenting and education these days! For kids, it's all about growth mindset, learning from failure, and being able to ask for help. Read more here.
