Children

First Friday

First Friday is a kids’ night out program, designed to give parents an evening to themselves. Volunteers provide creative and exciting entertainment for the children in a safe and fun atmosphere at the church. Dinner is provided for children and helpers. First Friday is for children aged six months through 12 years. All children in our community are welcome, whether or not their families attend Little River UCC. Tell your friends and family!

Youth

Pilgrim Youth Fellowship (PYF) is an opportunity for youth to gather for recreation, fellowship, learning, and service for their spiritual growth.

Junior PYF (age 11-13) and Senior PYF (age 14-18) meet Sundays from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Parents are invited to share hospitality with the youth by bringing a Sunday evening meal.

Youth Summer Mission Experiences

Mission trips are an opportunity for youth to actively practice their faith, join in fellowship with one another, gain independence and responsibility, and learn an appreciation of communities different from their own.

The PYF youth share in Potomac Youth Senior High Summer Mission Experiences, partnering with youth from the 36 churches in the Potomac Association of the United Church of Christ. Since 2010, the Potomac Youth have organized a “Half-House Sponsorship” annually with Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity in Franklin, West Virginia. The teams have done finishing work on homes, including drywall, patching, painting, flooring, and landscaping.

In 2014, Potomac Youth is offering a pilot Summer Mission Experience for middle high youth through a partnership with Reach Beyond Mission, a UCC organization with roots in Texas. Participants will share in an urban immersion experience in Washington, DC.
