This Fall, we are practicing our theme, Embracing Possibility, as we welcome our children, youth, and families back to Religious Education programming. We are working to support our families and planning to have something in place for all. I want to take this space to spell out our plans, which are, of course, subject to change. These are complicated times!
•Join Mia or RE volunteer teachers at 10:00 am for elementary RE on Zoom. This will look a lot like the Zoom classes we held last year—for half an hour, we’ll light a chalice, introduce ourselves, see a story, and discuss it through the lens of our theme.
•Join Alana and our Youth Advisors at 10:00 am for youth group. This meeting is hybrid, so that all our youth can be together, whether they join in-person at the church or virtually.
•Starting September 12, join RE staff and volunteers on the playground at 11:00 for in-person elementary programming. In-person children will receive the same lesson that their virtual friends got at 10:00 am, followed by playtime on our playground. Everyone is required to be masked and maintain a safe distance.
•Children 3 and up are welcome on the playground. Children under three should remain with their parents.
•Our masked and vaccinated volunteers are welcome (and needed!) during the class and for playtime on the playground.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon, either online or in person!
