“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” -- Psalm 119:105
My name is Jan Austin-Scott, and I’m UCC’s Education Team Lead. Growing up in the Church of Christ gave me a firm faith foundation, a love for 4-part a cappella singing, and an understanding of the importance of participating in my church community. As my faith evolved, particularly over my years in Buenos Aires and Boston, I attended Churches of Christ as well as Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ congregations. Becoming a part of UCC when we moved to Austin in 2004 was an obvious choice!
So much is happening in our Education Program right now, and I enthusiastically invite everyone to get involved! We are blessed to have both staff and lay-members who plan and implement meaningful and fun programming. There are classes and activities for every person in our church; we appreciate both our attendees, and our volunteers who make our programs possible. (We need and love our volunteers, and we look for opportunities to feed them well!! )
Under the brilliant and creative leadership of Emily Jamison Guerrero, our Director of Children’s Ministries, and Meghan Dever, our Pastor of Pastoral Care and Youth Ministries, our youngest children through teens actively learn Bible stories and teachings, and understand how to connect the meaning of those stories to their everyday lives.
Upcoming events for our children and youth include:
We invite adults to join these ongoing faith and fellowship opportunities. Details can be found at this link.
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, feedback or ideas about UCC’s faith and fellowship programs. Or find me at church for an in-person conversation. We’re making plans now for summer and fall!
Yours on the journey -- Jan
