Coming of Age
NSUU’s Coming of Age program (ages 12+) fosters the transition of a congregation’s children into youth, and typically marks the individual’s transition from younger religious education programs. We use the curricula from the Coming of Age Handbook for Congregations, allowing some room for adaptations. In this program the youths not only learn from lesson plans and activities, but also from each other in community. Throughout the year, the youths will work on writing and/or creating their credos. At the completion of their programs they are asked to share their credos with the rest of the congregation.
