May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please,
but as the opportunity to do what is right.

RE for the Summer
Our summer RE program has started. Each week the children who attend the RE program will be involved in planting, tending and then sharing the produce of their garden with the guests at the Soup Kitchen. Each Sunday after they leave the sanctuary, the children will have their opening ritual, a story, and then they will work on a related craft and/or work in the garden on the east side of the building. Please have your children dress appropriately for being outside each Sunday. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Norma Bailey (989-560-3952 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or see her at church.
You can't separate peace from freedom because
no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
