El Parkis Youth

A Youth Ministry Collective of Parkside Community Church, Loomis UCC, and Elk Grove UCC. El Parkis is a Youth Ministry for ALL serving middle and high school youth throughout the greater Sacramento area.
Under Trans & Queer leadership since 2021.

Growing Together

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

Youth Group

How it works: Once a month, youth from Elk Grove, Loomis, and Parkside UCCs and throughout the community come together for an all El Parkis Youth Ministry Event.
We volunteer locally, embark on overnight service trips, play pickup sports games, make art, and throw top-notch BBQs.

Throughout the rest of the month, youth programming happens at one church per week. We share a meal together, have youth group, and participate in Sunday Worship.
Anyone can join- you don’t have to belong to a church or even be religious.

 All are welcome. And there are ALWAYS SNACKS.

Join us for our all El Parkis events and/or individual youth programming at the location of your choice: Elk Grove UCC, Parkside Community Church, and Loomis Basin UCC.
