This Week In Religious Education

One More Sunday Left

There is only one more Sunday of this year's RE year left! Then, please come on June 12th for the RE Sunday worship services to celebrate all the wonderful things that have happened this year.

Sunday and Everyday: Taking it Home

Memorial Day

2015-05-25 11.57.33Last Sunday we talked about Memorial Day and read the book The Wall by Eve Bunting.

Extend the Conversation at Home:

Has anyone in your family fought in a war? What do you know about them?

How can we honor the sacrifices that some have made in the name of our country?

How do we balance working for peace, justice, and honoring those who serve in the military?
Family Faith in Action Adventure:

We have several war memorials on the Capitol Campus. Take your kids to the memorials to place flowers.

Next Sunday, June 5th


  • Nursery Care Only

  • Nursery Care
  • Spirit Play (pre-K) will have the story "I'll Love You Forever", to talk about letting go and saying goodbye.
  • Labyrinth Learning (1st-5th grade) will have a final wrap-up class about Labyrinths.
  • Middle School youth will be leaving for a field trip to Trampoline Nation.

Announcements and Upcoming Events:

Upcoming RE Work Parties

Interfaith Summer Camp

The theme will be Spirituality of the Seasons. We will look at the connectedness of faith traditions around seasonal similarities such as midwinter celebrations that include light and candles, harvest holidays and spring celebrations of new life. What is it about these times that invoke a spiritual celebration in us, regardless of our faith tradition?

July 25-29, 9-3pm daily, Temple Beth Hatfiloh

Open to children going into 2-6th grades

Summer RE Volunteers Needed


Do you build, create, invent, or make? Do you sew, knit, do woodwork, electronics, fix radios, screenprint, or …? This summer, we want a guest each Sunday at 11:00 to demonstrate a different making technique, and to help supervise the Maker Studio as the kids work on their own making.

Don’t want to demonstrate a skill, but still want to help out? MakerSpace supervisors are also needed each Sunday!
