Sunday school for children and youth takes place every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at the same time as Worship.
The children attend worship every Sunday for the first 15 minutes and then head to their classrooms.
The youth worship is at the Fellowship Hall Classroom. The Youth Band leads contemporary style praise & worship and Rev. Rae Kim preaches. After each Sunday worship, there is a group bible study and a guitar/ukulele class.
We are blessed to have three age level youth groups at UJCC:
5th & 6th Grade Youth Group: NINJAS
7th & 8th Grade Youth Group: F.R.O.G. Fellowship (Fully Relying On God)
9th-12th Grade Youth Group: F.I.S.H. Fellowship (Faith is Still Here)
