Heading 2020 Coming of Age Service
Coming of Age (Grades 7-12)
The act of creating and delivering a credo is an honored rite of passage in our church. This is an in-depth exploration of personal faith and spirituality designed for our younger UU's to examine and articulate the beliefs they have been developing. The youth choose an adult member of our congregation to be their mentor, whom they meet at the first session. They will connect throughout the duration of the sessions (usually January-May) to explore their faith journey and, with assistance, develop and deliver their personal faith credo, which varies in the presentation of a written statement, art, dance, etc. This collaboration creates a bond to stay connected to the church community throughout their lives.
