Trust

by West Shore UU Church Youth and

Jack Smith

Youth Ministry Coordinator

It takes a lot to build and gain trust, especially as teenagers grow and see their friends change, become more aware of the current social and economic climate, and enter the working world. Find out what trust means to the youth in the congregation as they navigate through schools, church, spiritual lives, social justice activities, and their community. Our youth will discuss who and what they trust and how it will help shape their future worldview.

Worship Associate

West Shore has made a commitment to be a force for racial justice in the life and communities of its people. But before anyone can change the world (or themselves), they must understand how things came to be the way they are. Some thoughts on being a white person, and telling the whole truth.

Growing Up with Money

Growing Up with Money

What lessons did you learn about money as a child? Was it the key to security, or happiness – or was money’s power a temptation to guard against, a pathway to immorality? We tend to carry such early lessons into adulthood, where they can exert more influence than we know. What money lessons do you hope to demonstrate in your life? What money stories do you hope your church will teach?

Jazz

Jazz

Worship Associate

Any lovers of Jazz amongst us? Of course, there must be. Rather smooth jazz, ragtime or fans of New Orleans “Second Lining”, the origins and soul of jazz provide many images and metaphors of abundant possibilities. As we work towards even more racial and social justice engagement within this congregation and in the Greater Cleveland area, how might we imagine ourselves creating deeper relationships with ourselves and each other, to live the congregation's mission and vision of becoming an “anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multicultural congregation”? The Free Spirit Band will play, and children will start in the service for a Jazzy Time for All Ages before going to their classes.
