RE News

October 22, 2017


We are tweaking our class times just a bit in response to comments voiced by both parents and teachers trying to move between worship and CRE classes. Our classes will now begin at 10:25 and conclude at 11:05. That gives parents, teachers and helpers a little more transition time before and after worship.  Remember, this is an interim year, a year of changes and test drives. Watch this space next week for more about Interim Religious Educator and the Interim process.

CRE This Week….

We are back to classes by age-grouping during middle hour this Sunday, starting at 10:25.

CRE Plan Ahead….
