Rite 13 (6th & 7th Grade)
Rite-13 guides late elementary and middle school students through a celebration of their “coming of age” and what that means to them and to their faith. This two-year program culminates in a celebratory meal with family and friends and special recognition during worship.
The Rite-13 celebration marks a transition point in the lives of the youth at United Parish. Most of these kids are about to enter high school. They are on the brink of exploring who they are in the world and how to make decisions as an individual. They have spent two years learning about themselves as individuals and understanding their creative potential, while exploring Biblical stories of God and God's people. The Rite-13 Celebration is the community expression of this and serves as a rite of passage from childhood towards adulthood.
