RE (Religious Education, for the uninitiated) registration for 2017-18 will begin this coming Sunday, September 10, following our annual water service celebration - which happens to be a multigenerational worship service - so all ages are welcome! Childcare will be available for those needing to be in a different space. If you are unable to attend this Sunday, please contact our RE Director, Anna V. at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are trying something new this year for children’s RE. We plan to hire two RE teachers, so that each of our three Sunday morning RE children’s groups (infant- 4 yrs old, K to 2nd grade, 3rd- 6th grade) has a regular lead teacher. This significantly reduces our dependence on volunteer teachers from the congregation for RE during worship service. However, we need to have an additional adult to assist the lead teacher. Therefore, we will need three adults (one in each classroom) each Sunday to volunteer to help with RE. If each of our members and friends volunteers for just two Sunday mornings between September and May, we will have enough volunteers. Because our hired teachers will do all the lesson planning, setting up, and teaching, our members and friends will only need to show up and be present for our kids. Please see RE Director Anna vanArsdalehoot to sign-up for the privilege of helping our RE programs and interacting with our youth!
