Coming of Age

Coming of Age is a program through which the Fellowship fosters the transition of its children into youth. The program is open to 9th graders who meet Sunday mornings from September through May. Advance registration and year-long participation are required.

Youth participants in the program develop a greater sense of what they believe through discussion, conversations with adult mentors who are members of the congregation, participating in group meetings, retreats and workshops, and taking an optional trip to Boston to learn more about our Unitarian Universalist history. At the end of the year, Coming of Age graduates are invited to sign the membership book to formally join our congregation and lead a worship service to share their credos, the personal faith statements they have developed over the course of the year.

The next Coming of Age class will take place in the fall of 2020.

Youth Leadership Program

10th grade youth who have successfully completed our Coming of Age program and 11th and 12th graders are invited to participate in our year-long Youth Leadership program. Our youth leaders serve as Children’s Ministry assistants on Sunday mornings. Contact Director of RE, Tryst Chagnon, for more information.
