This Week in Religious Education

Summer Sundays

These Summer Sundays with books and readers have been lovely. And while we still don't return to our full Religious Education program until September 17th, that doesn't mean we aren't busy behind the scenes getting ready for it. There are a few ways you can help us get ready for what is going to be a really great year:

  • 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:
  • 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!

Summer Religious Education Volunteers Needed
