Coming of Age: Grade 9
A crowning jewel in Unity’s Religious Education sequence is the Coming of Age (COA) program. The COA program is open for 9th grade youth and meets September-April on Sunday afternoons from 4:30-5:45.
Coming of Age, is a rich program of spiritual exploration that culminates in the creation of a personal credo. Through engaging classes, supportive mentorships and individual reflection and writing, youth will arrive at a point where they will feel confident sharing their statement of their personal theology in a joyful ceremony.
In late April, our COA program culminates in a weekend of sharing and celebration. Youth and mentors enjoy a final banquet together. Family and friends are invited to attend the evening Ceremonies, where youth share their statements with the congregation and guests. On Coming of Age Sunday, the youth are recognized as full participants in our faith community.
For information about the Coming of Age program at Unity Church, please contact Drew Danielson by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 651-228-1456 x112.
A key part of Coming of Age is the mentor/mentee relationship. It is both one of the most challenging and most rewarding experiences you can have as a Unity Church member. We are looking to expand and develop our pool of members who are prepared to guide, advise and encourage 9th graders preparing for this important rite of passage. If you are interested in serving as a Coming of Age mentor beginning in September, contact Drew Danielson at email@example.com.
