Coming of Age and Boston Heritage Trip

This year, our 7th and 8th grade class will participate in the Coming of Age curriculum. This curriculum focuses on the youth creating their personal faith statements with the help of religious education teachers, parents, ministers, and mentos. The class culminates in a trip to Boston, for first-hand experiences of the Unitarian Universalist Association and its roots. The youth visit sites of historical importance for Unitarians such as UUA Headquarters, UUSC Headquarters, Arlington Street Church, King's Chapel, Harvard, and Walden Pond. Parents/guardians are expected to work cooperatively with the youth on fundraising for this trip.
