So God created humankind in God’s image...
Our Programming for 6th & 7th Graders
“Manhood and womanhood are free gifts of God; adulthood is a privilege to be earned.”
– The Rite-13 Curriculum
All 6th and 7th graders are invited to participate in the middle school program. It is a two-year curriculum centered on the themes of self, society, service, and spirituality. By drawing on the biblical stories and the traditions of the Episcopal Church learned in prior years,participants explore the place of prayer and the spiritual life in their own lives. The program invites our emerging young adults to question and explore what it means to be made in the image of God, to discuss how being in relationship with God influences our decisions, and to discuss what kind of responsibility we have to our neighbors as disciples of Jesus Christ. This program is a combination of class, discussions, activities, and outreach opportunities. The class will join the larger parish community at the passing of the Peace so that children can be with their families for Holy Communion. Our participants will also gather 4 times a year with middle school students from other Episcopal Churches for fellowship, fun, service, and an overnight retreat.
