This Week In Religious Education

2015-05-28 11.08.40


 I was away last Sunday, and was sad to miss the last class of the 2014-2015 church year!  I hear it was fun, especially the exploration of labyrinths in the Labyrinth Learning Class.  Thank you to all of this year's RE Volunteers for making another wonderful year of religious education possible!

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.

Sunday and Everyday: Taking it Home

2015-05-28 11.14.52

In Spirit Play (pre-K) this Sunday the children had the Flaming Chalice Lesson, the core lesson for this age group, with the message that we are a diverse community organized around the symbol of the flaming chalice and our 7 Promises to one another (the 7 Principles). 

In Labyrinth Learning (1st-6th grade) there was fun exploration of the labyrinth as a spiritual practice.

High school youth met to reflect on the year.


Extend the Conversation at Home:

  • What was your favorite thing you did this year in RE?
  • What was the most meaningful thing you did at church this year?
  • Why do we go to church as a family?  What do each member of the family value about the church community?

Take Action as a Family:

Explore Labyrinths as a spiritual practice:

This Sunday: June 7th, 2015

This Sunday is a Multigenerational Worship Service.  There will be no RE classes other than Nursery Care.
