Offerings Through the Lifespan

We provide children, youth, young adults and adults opportunities to explore, reflect and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Our offerings inspire:

  • Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
  • Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
  • Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among and beyond us.

Current Offerings for Children & Youth

Dear UUFP Families and Friends,

October is Pride month in Plattsburgh! We as UUs are committed to supporting LGBTQ+ youth and creating safe spaces for them and to making the world kinder and safer and more welcoming.

As we celebrate Pride this month I invite you to check out the ‘The Trevor Project.’ The Trevor Project’s vision is a world where all LGBTQ+ youth see a bright future for themselves. The Trevor Project supports LGBTQ+ youth with resources and counseling and has tons of materials for youth that identify as allies. Here are some I recommend checking out:
 

  • Black and LGBTQ – Approaching Intersectional Conversations here.
  • How to support bisexual Youth here.
  • Guide to being an Ally to Transgender and Nonbinary Youth here.

Happy Pride!

LGBTQ+ Youth and Allies Support Group 

Over the last year I got to know and meet some of the young people at UUFP, most recently at Pride on October 2nd. And what I can say is that everyone is very passionate and caring and driven by a strong calling for social justice and social change. Particularly PRIDE is something important to many of you. As UUs we explore ways to live out our values daily. So I am wondering, how can we make PRIDE something more than an October event? How can the young people at UUFP get together to create a safe and brave and supportive space for LGBTQ+ youth year-round? How can you become allies to LGBTQ+ youth? How can you support the LGBTQ+ youth in your own midst?

If you and your friends are interested in forming and participating in an LGBTQ+ Youth Support Group please email re@uuplattsburgh.org or text 518-323-7130.

A potential first meeting will be 4-6 p.m. on Oct. 30.
