July 28, 2019, "Growing Up and Growing Older: Our UU Youth" (Summer Service Series #6) - David Silver, Worship Leader
As children grow into young adults, they are asked to adhere to the dogma and traditions of their faith. Unitarian Universalist children have a different spiritual journey. Join us to learn about how we work together to help our children become vibrant members of the UU and world community, as we guide them to define their faith and their beliefs, and to grow lifelong UU's. We will review several UU "rites of passages" including Growing UUp, Coming of Age(COA), and Our Whole Lives (OWL). Join Worship Leader David Silver (DRE UUCCN, LIAC OWL and COA facilitator) along with Joanne Polichetti (UUFH, LIAC COA facilitator) to learn our process. Musicians Ariana Kata, Daniela Kata, Pete Kata and John Seppala will perform.
