Coming of Age has exciting plans for the new year


Our middle school youth, and a few 9th graders, have been going through a program called Coming of Age (COA). CoA will meet primarily first and second Sundays from (4:45) 5-6 (But check schedule).  Parent Groups will also meet first and second Sundays from (4:45) 5-6. In May, the group will go on a pilgrimage to UU sites in Boston and Concord.

  • All are encouraged to attend the services on third and fourth Sundays
  • All Spiritual Practice sessions are with mentors (Karen Fisk and Karen Mack) and include time at end for mentors and mentees to talk about their experience
