RE Next Year!

The Religious Exploration program for 2017-2018 is already in the planning stages. There are many good and worthy ideas in the works that will need adult time and energy to make happen. Among them:

Our Whole Lives for 7th-9th grade needs two adult facilitators (training will be provided). Please talk about this program in the community; we would like several more participants to create an ideal size group. Please feel free to refer curious folks to Jill or Murray or Rev. Michael for more information.

Little Lights pre-school/kindergarten Sunday morning RE class is in need of one or more adults to be team leaders. These adults will share responsibility for leading the classes throughout the church year. Curriculum/topics to be decided with team input.

Seekers grade 1-5 Sunday morning RE class also needs adult leaders who will share responsibility for leading classes and help to determine topics and curriculum.  Adult helpers are also always needed; helpers do not need to prepare lessons or activities.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Jill Hall or any member of the RE Committee.

RE Summer

There are no RE classes or activities in the summer; a collection of stories, coloring pages and quiet toys for busy hands will be available for children to use during worship.

I hope you all have a sunny, fun-filled summer. I look forward to seeing you and hearing all about it.
