Religious Education Classes in July are All About Animals

Religious Education Classes in July are All About Animals

How do you teach your children the 7 principles of Unitarian Universalism, specifically love for animals and the interdependence of all living things? Would you like help with that?

Bring your K-12 students to weekly Religious Education (RE) classes in July at the University Gathering. Our schedule is packed with games, activities, meeting people and animals, discussion, reading and fun of so many kinds that the kids will enjoy their classes as if they’re attending a summer camp. The classes are designed for both younger and older youth. Students go directly to their summer class at 9:30 a.m. (except for July 15 when we have a joint service with our Salisbury Gathering friends and RE starts at 10:45 a.m.). Parents, pick up the little ones at 10:30 a.m.

During that hour, kids will meet their teachers for the week and find out what surprises are in store. Teachers are volunteers from Heart of the Carolinas Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry:

Here are some highlights:

July 8 Visit to the Alpaca Ranch after church. Sign up by emailing
July 22 Meet Ben, his mom, and Ben’s service dog Dubs
July 29 Meet Emily, a wildlife rehabber, and her possum

Encourage your child to come and to bring a friend. Youth from our Salisbury Gathering and the Lake Norman Fellowship are invited to join us!
