Youth Programs UPDATED 9/21/17 with info for the New Church Year

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Coming of Age for 8th Grade and up: provides opportunities for youth to learn who they are and where they are on their spiritual journey, bond with other teens, celebrate their gifts, learn about the church and how it works, and articulate their own personal beliefs within the context of our UU faith.  The year culminates on Coming of Age Sunday on the 3rd Sunday in May, when the youth will present religious credo statements before the congregation in a worship service of their own design. Offered again Next Year

9th-12th Grade: Young Religious Unitarian Universalists (YRUU) empowers teens, with the guidance of adult advisors, to create their own vision and mission for their program.  YRUU youth will explore what it means to be young and UU, how our UU principles inform how we live our lives, and what power young UU’s have to change the world.  YRUU also takes part in social justice projects, organizes social gatherings, and will plan and lead a Sunday worship service for the congregation. YRUU meets during the 9:00 service only. Meets in Room 1
