Religious Education Classes Begin

The Religious Education building is alive once again Sunday mornings as we welcomed our children and youth back for classes today.  

Our nursery was bursting at the seams with our youngest ones; thanks to Pat Montley for providing valuable assistance to our childcare provider, Kim Wolf.  Rose Kinder and Rebecca Wald helped our Sprouts (preschoolers and kindergarteners) learn about one of our most cherished values: each person is special and important.  Lee Dix and Karla Huber led the Explorers class (1st-6th grades)  in considering the idea of thresholds and helped them decorate the thresholds to their own classroom.  Our Spirit Play class held an orientation for the kids, led by storyteller, Gina Foringer and doorkeeper, Deb Kinder.  The youth group began their RPG with youth advisors, Andre Mendes and Alice Lium, creating the characters they will use in their adventures this year.

After classes, members and friends of all ages enjoyed a welcome party for Rev. Lyn Oglesby, featuring delectable Baltimore-themed potluck items.  Yum!

If you haven't already, please don't forget to register your children for this year's RE program by completing the online registration form here.  If you'd prefer a paper version, you can find a link in the sidebar to the right to download a registration form.

If a week is too long for you to wait to join your church community in a fun activity, I hope you'll join us for our Multigenerational Music Night this Wednesday at 6:00 pm.  RSVP to Becky.  Otherwise, we'll see you on Sunday!
