Two middle school opportunities are provided for children in 7th and 8th Grades.

Coming of Age

The Coming of Age program meets the 9:30 a.m. service and is a comprehensive program that spans the entire school year.  This rite of passage marks the transition from childhood to teen years and provides an invaluable opportunity to explore and learn about yourself and your religious beliefs within a supportive community of peers at UUCP.

 

The Coming of Age program at UUCP is designed for youth in the 7th, 8th and 9th grades and includes weekly classes, visits to other houses of worship, mentorship by an adult in the congregation, community service, team building activities and overnights, creation of deep friendships and the development of a personal credo of beliefs for presentation to the congregation in the spring.  Once completed, COA participants are invited to become full members of our congregation.

 

Parents will also play an important role in the Coming of Age program, serving as an advisory committee with responsibilities for leadership, planning and implementing trips, parties, and visits to other houses of worship, coordinating mentors, publicity, fundraising and community service activities.
