Ninth and Tenth Grades

Coming Of Age (COA)

10:45-12:00 (families begin together in the service)

The Portable Building annex

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 and traditions, and the Six Sources and Seven Principles,
  • The Great Religious Questions, such as “Is there a God?” or “Why are we here?” and,
  • How to live as a part of a church community.

The COA team will work with youth throughout this pivotal year to discuss important matters of faith and belief.  The youth will write a CREDO, or statement of personal belief and action, and present a Coming of Age service in late spring.  The year culminates in a class heritage trip to Boston in early summer to visit historical UU sites.
