2020-2021 RE Volunteers
Thank you for your commitment to RE this year as we navigate some our first virtual year! All e-RE meetings will be held on Zoom. Minimal knowledge of this application is needed to volunteer. Our DRE or a RE Team member will be present each Sunday to ensure a smooth transition into Break-Out Rooms and offer any tech support needed. The Zoom link for e-RE is available through our website, e-letter, and volunteer emails sent the week your designated volunteer day.
Our curriculum this year is led by Soul Matters (elementary class) and Crossing Paths (middle school).
Soul Matters Monthly Themes (1st-4th grade)
September ~ Renewal
October ~ Deep Listening
November ~ Healing
Crossing Paths Monthly Religions (5th-7th grade)
