For the fall semester of Youth Formation, the Fig Youth will be using as our guide an amazing curriculum called Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints by Daneen Akers. We will be exploring the lives of people of diverse faiths who have worked for love, compassion, and justice in every corner of the world, even if that meant rocking the religious boat.

  • Bayard Rusin: What is Holy Troublemaking?
  • Fr. Broderick Greer: Talking With Our Sacred Texts
  • Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg: Loving God By Caring For God’s Creation
  • Gustavo Gutierrez: Imitating Jesus
  • Herb Montgomery: What If Jesus Came To Show Us How To Live?
  • Kaitlin Curtice: Knowing Out Origin Story
  • Thich Nhat Hanh: Being a Buddhist
  • Maryam Molkara: Being True to Yourself Also Frees Others
  • Rumi: Creating Through Grief
  • Valarie Kaur: Practicing Revolutionary Love
  • Rev. Will Gaffney: What is Your Favorite Word for God?
  • What Kind of Holy Troublemaker Are You?

All Youth sixth grade and up are invited.

A new curriculum will be offered for the Spring semester.

Students 9th grade and up are invited to join us as we prepare for the Sacramental Rite of Confirmation in the spring. Starting January 7, 2024, we’ll meet in the Youth Center on Sundays during formation hour (10:15-11am) for 9 weeks. Each lesson will help guide our youth as they mature and ask the tough questions we should all ask about our traditions and beliefs. We hope the classes will act as a map for their faith journey.
