Coming of Age

6th-9th Grades – Drumbeat Classroom aka Garage

As youth prepare to leave childhood, they are maturing physically, cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually. This maturation opens the door for greater understanding of their faith, and Coming of Age program address changes in youth’s spiritual and faith development.

The goal of Coming of Age is to help youth better appreciate Unitarian Universalism, their own beliefs and values, and how these intersect. It will enable them to grasp what it means to belong to a congregation so that they may become informed members. It will help participants recognize that as they grow and change, there is still a place for them in their faith home: a new place, full of fresh opportunities and responsibilities.
