Religious Education Class Schedule

CHILDREN’S Religious Education

Children's RE is held during the regular service times. The children usually begin in the sanctuary for the opening of the service, and leave with the RE instructor after the minister presents a children's story. If there is no children's story, we will go directly to the lower level where children's RE is held.

New children are always welcome. Children are also welcome to sit with their adult family members during the service.

For more details, contact Barb Logan.
