Religious Education Staff

Shannon Cavell, Julie Richard, Lynn Farmer, and I have been overseeing the religious education program for about a month now. Please do not hesitate to come to us with any comments or concerns; we will do our best to address them. Kathy E. Smith, our new Director of Family Ministry, begins her work here with us on August 1. We have been trying very hard for a smooth transition; if you haven’t noticed much of a difference in how the RE programs are running, that’s probably a good sign. 

Classes for all age levels continue throughout the summer. Bear in mind that some classes are combined during the summer, and the children have “risen up” to the grade level they will be attending in the fall. 

We have recently begun having children's choir practice twice a month.  Currently, the choir is practicing in the Flames classroom on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 10:45am.  This is a great opportunity for children to learn some of our hymns, become comfortable singing, and spend some time with their friends.

There will be an RE Committee Meeting on July 9, 12:30. We will be picking fall curricula and discussing upcoming events. Childcare will be provided.

 Teaching In Religious Education for Children and Youth – we have a small but mighty roster of teachers and advisers for our religious education program in 2016-20017, but we need more help.
