Please join us on October 1st for our “We are the Church” Sunday School program. It is aimed at being social justice oriented, Christian spirituality based, and community service focused. In this curriculum, we will have 6 week “units” in which we explore a theological theme, while walking kids through the steps of volunteering with a community organization.

This unit, our theme is “Animals are God’s Beloved Creation” which will focus on the stories of creation and explore our role in caretaking for animals. For this unit, we are partnering with the Wake County Animal Center!
