The Youth Ministry Council of Sylvania UCC aims to provide guidance for the teens and the whole faith community in recognizing and utilizing the significant gifts the teens offer to the life of the entire church. We emphasize that youth members be integrated with and not separated from the mainstream of the church's life and mission. In acknowledgement of Teens unique place as beginners on a journey of faith and as people with unique interests, we also offer youth specific programming both for faith formation and fellowship.
