Illumination Youth Group

The Illumination Youth Group is a youth group that we have formed in conjunction with our sister churches Christ Church UCC, Ft. Thomas and St. John UCC, Bellevue. For more information about the program and when they meet please contact the church office or visit the website below.


Wednesday, October 21– 6:30 – 8:00 PM at United Church of Christ, Fort Thomas (15 S Fort Thomas Ave,
Fort Thomas):
This will be another socially-distanced affair–please wear a mask! We will have a fire and decorate
pumpkins. Maybe think of a spooky story to share?

Wednesday, November 4– 6:00 – 7:00 PM (Virtual Meeting– MEETING LINK ):
Winter is a hard season for a lot of folks, but especially those who are homeless. Let’s meet virtually and
prep some go-packs. Please RSVP so that I can drop off materials.

Wednesday, November 18– 6:00 – 7:00 PM (Virtual Meeting– MEETING LINK ):
Thanksgiving is approaching! For many families, this gathering will look different than in years past. Let’s
ease the transition by baking cookies to share with our families. Please RSVP so that I can drop off

Wednesday, December 2– 6:00 – 7:00 PM (Virtual Meeting– MEETING LINK ):
Stay tuned for details, but I’m hoping to have a board game night. I’m researching the House Party app to
see how we can make this work.

Wednesday, December 16– 6:00 – 7:00 PM (Virtual Meeting– MEETING LINK ):
More cookies as we prep for Christmas! This time, you’ll be provided cookies and we will decorate them.
Please RSVP so that I can drop off materials (and confirm food allergies/sensitivities).

We are in need of adults who want to hang out with us. We’re a pretty fun (and energetic) bunch. We need
interested adults to go through a background check. After that, you’ll work with Melanie to schedule as many
or as few dates as your availability allows.

Illumination Youth Ministry is a shared youth ministry of St. John UCC-Bellevue and Christ Church UCC-Fort
Thomas. Middle School and High School Youth (Grades 6-12) are invited and encouraged to attend. Our
regularly scheduled meetings are on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Friends are always
welcome—we just ask that everyone sign in for meetings with appropriate emergency contact information.
