WHO IS IT?
I am excited to let you know about a special program we are offering for your kids ages 12-15 this year!
WHAT IS IT? As youth prepare to leave childhood, our congregation seeks to honor this transition with the Coming of Age program.
Unitarian Universalist teenagers usually join their congregations with a special “Coming of Age” ceremony. This ceremony will be preceded by a year-long curriculum helping them to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and articulate their own beliefs. The Coming of Age ceremony usually features the youth reading their statements of personal belief (credo statements) to the congregation.
WHEN IS IT?
The whole group will meet on second Tuesday evenings, 6:30-8:00 PM. We will also offer a retreat in November (Fri-Sat), a lunch with Rev. Kevin in March (Sun), and a Celebration dinner in April (Sat.).
