Young Adults Dream a Church—Online: A Drive Time Essay

Play This Video on Smallscreen

If you know of young adults who don’t live close enough to a church to attend, or who might like additional religious experience, there is now the Church of the Younger Fellowship (CYF).

CYF is the result of collaboration between a group of Unitarian Universalist (UU) young adults and the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Church of the Larger Fellowship. CYF exists primarily as a website.

Church of the Larger Fellowship Senior Minister Jane Rzepka adds, "CYF is a virtual faith community guided by Unitarian Universalist principles. Our dreams for it include young adult worship broadcasts, message boards with threaded discussions, online chat discussion groups, a calendar of UU national and regional events, joys and concerns, and we also hope it will serve as a resource center for congregations that are interested in serving young adults."

If you know young adults who might appreciate a CYF connection, send them to the website for more information. The partner in this venture, the Church of the Larger Fellowship, ministers primarily through its own website to more than 3,700 religious liberals, many of whom live isolated from other congregations.
