Middle School Youth
Neighboring Activists: Grades 6 and 7
Our Sixth and Seventh Graders are exploring how they can make a difference in our congregation, locally and globally. In the Fall, they will be helping to mobilize First Parish participation in the Concord CROP Walk for the Hungry. The 36th Annual Concord Mass. Area CROP Walk for the Hungry will be held on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at First Parish in Concord. Youth in Grades 6 and 7 start in the Sanctuary with their families. Following the Children’s Message, they leave the Sanctuary for their classroom with their teachers.
Neighboring Faiths: Grade 7 (Winter and Spring)
This program gives our First Parish 7th Graders exposure to many different faith traditions. Through on-site discussions and off-site visitations, 7th Graders develop an appreciation for other religions while also growing a deeper understanding of our own Unitarian Universalist traditions.
UU Explorers: Grade 8 (Fall)
Following the Neighboring Faiths experience last spring, our Eighth Graders will explore their UU identities. This new offering will include field trips to other Unitarian Universalist congregations, spiritual practices and deep conversations about the science and the power of spirituality.
