Rite 13

for 7th and 8th Grade

Our late middle schoolers join the 9:30 AM Sunday service, and then step out for their own ‘Rite 13’ formation time following the sermon. This group will delve into the life of the church and questions of faith through multi-week units exploring diverse parts of our experience as Christ-followers, from bread baking to pilgrimage. Our young people will have the space to use and find their gifts and try on new roles in the community.  With plenty of space for wonder, the curriculum offers an experience of the interweaving of scripture, common practice, tradition, and our individual inspiration as we make church together. All of our Sunday morning gatherings are also supplemented by retreats, lock-ins, and social service opportunities.  Join us!

If you have any questions or comments about our youth programming, please contact Reed at rloy@stalbansmaine.org.
