This Week in Religious Education

Our Final Summer Readers Class This Sunday

Here are some of the books I've been surrounded by this summer ... what about you? This Sunday is the final chance to bring in your completed Reader Sheets and collect a small prize for all the summer reading you've been doing.

Then September 10th will be a multigenerational worship service, The Water Communion.

Full Religious Education begins again September 17th, with a Parent Orientation at 12:30.

You can still help us get ready!
  • Volunteer to teach! We still need teachers in our Labyrinth Learning (1st-5th grade class).
  • Save the date for our first ever RE Planning Party: September 7th, 7-9pm. (Childcare can be arranged if you request it at least a week in advance) Come be part of a collaborative process of lesson planning for Spirit Play and Labyrinth Learning!
  • Register your child(ren) for the new program year: You can also look for the computer I'll have in the Commons for the next few Sundays, and register on Sunday morning.
  • Grab a couple donations for the RE program while doing your back to school shopping (see wish list below)

I'm excited for the return to full programming, and thank you to everyone who has volunteered and is getting trained and ready to go!
