Ninth and Tenth Grades

Coming Of Age

(Beginning August 2017)

During this important year, youth examine their maturing religious identity and diverse UU heritage.

They spend the year in three main areas of study:


- Unitarian Universalist history, traditions, ceremonies, historical figures, and our Covenant of Seven Principles

- Our Six Sources, their major traditions and faith practices, and other world faith traditions

- The Great Religious Questions, such as “Is there a God?” or “Why are we here?”.


The youth are then asked to write CREDO, or statement of personal belief and action. The year culminates with a COA ceremony with the congregation and a Unitarian Universalist Heritage trip to Boston in early summer.
