Religious Exploration

It's RE Sunday! Families are invited to worship together. Classes and Youth Group do not meet.


“RE Sunday” ~ Tracy Breneman, Karen Dreher, Children and Youth, Families

Times of change offer opportunities to experiment with ways to adapt to emerging needs. Your Religious Exploration leadership is delighted by the enthusiasm being generated around identifying some new ways forward in family ministry. Join us to celebrate the past year in RE and look ahead as we take into account feedback and embrace creativity in planning for a new year.
