YouthGroup for Teens


Helping kids transition from childhood to adolescence is central to healthy and whole spiritual growth. Recognizing the vitality of our kids as they grow up, WellSprings is offering more ways for our teens to be a significant part of our community and develop their spiritual lives.


We offer a three-pillar Sunday morning program to help teens grow spiritually through nurturing a healthy sense of themselves, others, and their community.


  • Mindfulness for Teens gathers on Sundays in the fall. Using formal mindfulness practices such as meditation and yoga, teens experience, discuss and actively participate in weekly sessions offering essential qualities of mindfulness--patience, diligence, kindness and open-heartedness. Mindfulness for Teens provides opportunity for kids to practice and integrate life-long tools for living a spiritually healthy existence. Mindfulness practice nurtures open hearts, observant minds and a vibrant sense of self.
  • Our Whole Lives (OWL),offered every other spring, engages teens in open, honest and safe discussions, helping to prepare each one to make informed and responsible decisions about relationships, sexual health and social behaviors. Drawing directly from Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and United Church of Christ (UCC) developed sexuality education curriculum, OWL encourages teens to build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality, in age-appropriate weekly sessions. Read more about the curriculum here.
  • Spark! Connecting Through Our Lives  is a coming of age program that alternates every other spring with OWL. Spark! brings together a vibrant group of young teens engaged in a formative program designed to help shape a spiritual life through a deeper understanding of self, family, community and the sacred. Spark! graduates are honored and celebrated within WellSprings upon completion of the program.


On remaining Sundays teens can choose to hear the weekly message or serve as a Peer Mentor in a YouthSpirit group with the younger kids.

YouthSpirit

Welcome to WellSprings' YouthSpirit Program!

YouthSpirit is where our children grow spiritually with fun, friends and fellowship on Sunday morning. Our hope and mission to give families “more in life” (to glean a phrase from Robert Fulghum) begins on Sunday when WellSprings’ children engage in meaningful activities designed to encourage faith practices and spiritual awareness.


Enthusiastic WellSprings members serve as YouthSpirit Mentors and lead interactive classroom experiences and spiritual workshops designed to be integrated into life beyond Sunday morning, becoming a part of family life – in conversations, in more intentional time together, and in practices that sustain meaningful daily living.


Deeply rooted in WellSprings’ Core Values and Beliefs, YouthSpirit meets in Sunday morning groups from September to May. In summer, YouthSpirit fellowship time provides outdoor fun, arts and crafts, and SpiritFlix for Kids in a large group setting.


YouthSpirit is delighted to offer five children’s groups for toddlers through 8th graders every Sunday morning, at both the 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM worship services (or 10:00 AM only during spring/summer months). YouthSpirit Nursery and Pre-K is the fun place where babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers come together for fun and creative play with two loving caregivers each week.


There’s lots of fun in store in YouthSpirit this year, and we’re excited to offer a place where our children “feel the rapture of being alive,” (Joseph Campbell).
