Bridging A Handbook for Congregations
By Gail Forsyth-Vail, Jessica York
Bridging will enhance your Youth and Young Adult Ministry programs, and help make the process of becoming a young adult a spiritually fulfilling community event for your congregation.
The Bridging Ceremony celebrates the transition of our youth from their high school experience into young adulthood.
One of the most important things we can do for our youth is to support them into adulthood, to keep them connected to Unitarian Universalism, and continue to minister to them as they become adults. Resources for Bridging from Youth to Young Adulthood can help you succeed in this ministry.
