Youth are considered any child that is enrolled in grades 7-12.
- We are proud to offer a Youth Group for our young people in grades 7-12. The Youth Group meets in the evening on the First and Third Sunday each month.
- At this age of faith development it is also very important for youth to attend entire services on a Sunday as they begin to develop their own views and beliefs.
- We will be begin offering our Coming of Age program midway through the 2017-2018 program year .
Coming of Age
Coming of Age, a uniquely Unitarian Universalist program is designed to mark the transition from childhood to youth. Throughout history, many cultures and religions have recognized this time of great change. As youth prepare to leave childhood, they are maturing physically, cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually. At this age, they can reason about themselves, the world, and their place in it in a much deeper way than ever before. It is a very spiritual time.
The Coming of Age program offers new ways to experience Unitarian Universalism. It asks the youth to reflect upon what it means to be UU and provide a safe environment for questioning. Through activities and discussion this program with assist our youth on their journeys of spiritual self-awareness
