DO YOU HAVE UU TEENAGERS?
If so, email email@example.com for the rest of the information about this great opportunity for UU teens:
“Several religious educators in the area have been working to jumpstart some youth engagement across our congregations. So, we have planned a gathering all day April 1 from 10am to 10pm for youth in 7th-12th grade at SouthWest UU in North Royalton. We are focusing on bringing in some elements of CON culture, practice being together in a covenantal community, create and share a youth worship experience, social justice learning and service, and have a conversation with the jr. high and sr. high groups about what they would like to see moving forward.”
