Growing and connecting in our faith identity

Our group for Middle School focus on developing a strong community of care and connection with peers and adult mentors. These experiences help Middle School youth to –

  • Grow in Self Awareness
  • Connect in a Caring Community
  • Experience Mystery and Awe
  • Learn about Unitarian Universalism
  • Live our Foothills mission of “Unleashing Courageous Love in Northern Colorado and Beyond.”


10:00AM    Flame Finders|6th/7th grades

This group helps 6th/7th Graders in their own search for understanding. Each week we engage a “Big Question” like: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? Does God exist? and What happens when you die? How I know what to believe? What does Unitarian Universalism mean to me?

Note* This year our 8th grade youth join our high school youth group which meets from 11:00am – 12:30pm

Have a Middle Schooler?

We can’t wait to meet them and invite them into a strong community of connection and care.


It’s Just a Phase: Middle School

Who is that kid? They are changing so fast I feel like I hardly know them!

In middle school kids are changing incredibly fast—in body, mind, and emotions—you may feel you hardly know them anymore. One day they are as responsible and cooperative as an adult; the next day they are more like a six-year-old. One minute they are sunny and enthusiastic. The next they are gloomy and silent. Keep cool. These kids are in process; they’re becoming more self-sufficient. Their biggest task is checking out what independence feels like.
