6th-10th Grade Crossing Paths
Crossing Paths is an interfaith learning program with the goal of helping youth build and clarify their own UU identity through engagement with other faiths. This interfaith journey will include Unitarian Universalism, Paganism, Catholicism, Indigenous Religions, Humanism, Cults, & Evangelical (Megachurch).
The youth will learn about the basic beliefs and practices of the religion, we will reflect on how the faith compares to Unitarian Universalism and take virtual visit to another faith community, by watching worship, or engaging in spiritual practice and interviewing a guest from the faith tradition.
Through Crossing Paths, participants will gain wisdom and develop and deepen their spiritual practices. Welcoming and reaching out across differences is at the heart of Unitarian Universalism. Our hope is that youth leave Crossing Paths with seeds of the spiritual practices that they will carry with them throughout their entire lives.
Families Together: All Ages RE, Sundays, 11:15-11:45 a.m.
During this family ministry time, we will explore our faith and the church’s monthly themes, and connect with other families in the church community. Kimberlee will guide these interactive sessions, offering ministry and sharing ways for families to build religious education into their home life.
Each week, we will invite families and church members to participate as featured guests, by lighting the chalice, sharing a story from their life, or leading a song, game, or activity. We know that families are children’s primary religious educators, and that faith formation is grounded in the home; Families Together will offer a medley of ways for families to enrich their daily lives and stay centered in their values.
