An Invitation to the Upcoming Youth Services
These services are a celebration of the values that we are passing on to the next generation and can also be a wonderful opportunity for those who are interested in learning more about our church community and the role it plays in the lives of our youth.
Seventh- and eighth-graders and their families are especially encouraged to join us so they can learn more about what lays ahead for them.
Youth Service: Sunday, May 1 – 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
The senior class will share personal reflections on their time at First Church, the junior class will give a musical tribute to the graduating seniors and the sophomore class will share a story for all ages. This is an opportunity to learn what our church community has meant to our youth over the years.
COA Ceremony: Sunday, May 8 – 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
This is a great chance to get a glimpse into ninth grade. The Coming of Age program creates a supportive environment where youth are able to explore big questions, reflect on their beliefs, and ultimately to have the confidence to make decisions based on their values. In this program, participants explore their UU roots alongside the personal beliefs and values that they are developing. Together with adult mentors, youth put their faith into action through community service projects, social action and by working to develop language to express their personal beliefs. The Coming of Age culminates when the youth share their personal credo statements with the congregation at the COA Ceremony.
