Coming of Age (Next Offered Jan. 2023)

Love is our Doctrine. Service is our prayer. Justice is our calling.

A tradition at Valley UU, Coming of Age uses principles of Unitarian Universalism to highlight the transition from childhood to the teenage years and emerging adulthood. The program takes advantage of the diversity of Unitarian Universalist ideas and principles to give a foundation for a lifelong search for truth and meaning, a commitment to service, justice, peace and environmental stewardship. The program is offered to High School aged youth.

2023 Fundraisers:

UU Principles T-Shirt Fundraiser

The Valley UU Youth are headed to Boston! The 10 youth and 2 facilitators of the Valley UU 2023 Coming of Age program think everyone needs a colorful t-shirt which broadcasts the Unitarian Universalist 7 principles.

The shirts are available in 6 different styles and a variety of colors.

This fundraiser helps the youth pay for their heritage trip to Boston.
