What is this Fire of Commitment that we speak of each week as we extinguish our chalice?  Who is committed and why does it matter?  Join us this Sunday morning at 9 AM as we discuss The Who, What, and Why of being committed to curiosity, care for others, justice for all, and change.

In Normal times...

Religious Exploration (RE) classes take place during the 10 am Worship Services on Sundays. Before the service, your family will be greeted in the entryway by the Director of Religious Exploration, Laura Moberg, who will ask you to fill out an information sheet, and answer any questions you may have about the program.

The children start with their families in the Sanctuary, where they experience worship as part of the larger community. They participate in Chalice Lighting, singing with the congregation, storytelling, and then collect food and personal care items for our friends and neighbors using The Haven food shelf. At this time, the children go with their teachers to the RE classrooms and continue their spiritual exploration in a way that is developmentally appropriate to them. Parents and guardians can replenish their spirits in the service, and then enjoy social time at coffee hour, while the children continue their lessons until 11:30am.
