Grades 6-7:

Rite-13 (from the Journey to Adulthood Program) – This two-year program celebrates the individuality of each young teen and his/her creative potential, while exploring Biblical stories of God and God’s people. A foundational piece of this program is a special Rite-13 liturgy that serves as a rite of passage from childhood towards adulthood (akin to a bar- or bat-mitzvah) and is celebrated by and amidst the congregation in the spring.

Grades 8-9:

J2A (from the Journey to Adulthood Program) – This two-year program picks up where Rite-13 leaves off and helps teens create and understand the importance of Christian community as they develop critical thinking and other skills they will need in adulthood. The end of the first year is marked by an “urban adventure”/outreach experience and/or an overnight retreat. The end of the second year is marked with a spiritual pilgrimage, planned and executed by the group, that is often a life-changing experience for all involved.
