Learning and Growing — 9th & 10th Grades

Coming of Age Group

Channing Memorial Church values religious education for Unitarian Universalists of all ages.  Currently, our Religious Education offerings are in transition. Below, you can see what we have offered traditionally and hope to return to in the future! If you have children and are interested in engaging with the church, please send Rev. Jane an email at  The more we know about interested families and children, the more we can offer!

Ninth and tenth graders explore their faith, personal identity, and spirituality. Where does religious and spiritual “authority” come from in Unitarian Universalism? What, if anything, is “God?” What is spirituality?  What is religion? What about life and death?

Youth explore deeply these and other big questions. The program culminates with each youth creating a personal credo statement, a statement of their own beliefs at this time in their life. They also participate in a pilgrimage to Boston, the center of Unitarian and Universalist history in the United States.

Coming of Age classes begin at 10:00 A.M.

  • 9th or 10th grade
