This series is easy on your schedule; only six sessions spread over the year. It culminates in a special bridging ceremony for the seniors – in which the juniors play a key role, and who will themselves experience bridging the following year. This course is offered every other year, so please encourage juniors to sign up, so they can also experience the journey.
Topics include navigating transitions, ethical decision-making, identity, spiritual and social gifts, looking ahead to the journey, and community connections. Rev. Ben Meyers and Rev. Gretchen Woods will participate in sessions to explore key topics with the youth.
At the annual Bridging Ceremony, graduating youth have an opportunity to reflect on their childhood, community, and hopes and dreams for the future. We offer them our blessings and good wishes – and the assurance that their community here is always available to them on their life journey.
Join us in recognizing and celebrating this important transition in the lives of our youth. To sign up for the Bridging Journey or to learn more, contact Tanya Webster.
