Middle School is full of opportunities for our youth. It includes sixth, seventh and eighth graders. On Sunday mornings, children and youth attend the opening of the worship service with their families. At the 9:15 service, they go to classes led by volunteer teachers using professionally created curricula. If you attend the 11:00 am service, middle schoolers stay in the worship with their families.
Middle School’s curriculum is called “Popcorn Theology Two,” and explores issues of theology and ethics through film excerpts from movies such as “The Life of Pi,” “I, Robot,” “The Hunger Games,” “X-Files, and “Million Dollar Baby.”
Eighth graders are also invited and encouraged to participate in Coming of Age, a year-long program that helps them learn about Unitarian Universalism and articulate their own beliefs.
Every other year, we offer middle school Our Whole Lives (OWL) – sexuality education geared to grades 7-9. It will be offered next year.
