Coming of Age

This rite of passage course will be offered to our eighth grade students, who will be matched with an adult mentor from our congregation. Together they will work on completing a required check-list of subjects including worship, social justice, religious history and tradition, life and organization at First Parish, and their own spiritual autobiography. This class culminates in a worship service and celebration during which their personal credos are shared.
