Coming of Age (COA) is a program designed for high school youth (Grades 9-12) to help them delve deeper into their personal understanding of faith and spirituality, while posing important questions about themselves and the world in which they live. COA involves two components: 1) facilitator-led plenary sessions with the entire group of COA students and their mentors; and 2) individual meetings with adult mentors to be individually arranged.
Throughout the program, the participants work with their adult mentors to develop a personal “credo," or “I believe,” statement. The credo is often a short essay, but may also be a story, poem, song, dance, video, or art project. COA youth will have the opportunity to share their work during a the Sunday morning service on June 11, 2017.
The COA sessions will be held on the following dates from 5:00–6:30pm in Rice House:
April 14 (Field Trip)
June 10 (Banquet 6-8pm)
June 11 – COA Sunday, 10:30am
