This Week In Religious Education

2015-07-04 23.31.10

We started our new "Animals of the Pacific Northwest" summer program last Sunday with a look at: Raptors!

For this week, I rented a "Burke Box" from the Burke Museum of Natural History, so we had some real bird specimens to examine.  They will still be with us next week as we learn about Owls.

Sunday and Everyday: Taking it Home


The class this Sunday focused on raptors.  We watched this video, played a game of "Predator/Prey Hot Potato", had bird specimens to observe, and made feather masks.

Extend the conversation at home:

  • How do you feel about predators?  What is their role in the interdependent web of life?
  • Would you like to be able to fly?  What do you imagine that feels like?
  • Have you ever heard a hawk call?  Seen a hawk?
  • Why do you think the bald eagle was chosen as our national bird?

Act on it:

Go bird watching!  The Nisqually Wildlife Refuge is a wonderful local place to see many birds.

This Sunday: July 12th, 2015


  • Nursery Care


  • Nursery Care
  • Animals of the PNW Class (pre-5th grade): Owls

If you would like to volunteer as a Junior Greeter, just let me know on any Sunday you are at church and we'll get you set up!

It's time now to look ahead to the 2015-2016 RE year, and if you've ever considered volunteering in RE, please do so!  Did you know that it takes a team of at least 24 volunteers to put on our RE program?  We need you!  Contact me at if you are interested in joining this fun team.
