RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

RE Connect is an intentional community building program that focuses on resilience, and readiness through spiritual development. The program provides an opportunity for participants to “re-connect” to their faith/spirituality for a short time and “disconnect” from the distractions that create barriers to their faith on a daily basis. In an inter-faith setting the 3 goals of this ministry includes: Faith Formation; Relationship Building; and Leadership Development. Christian based Religious Education classes (Catholic and Protestant), meet during the school year on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, typically September thru May. Childcare for ages 4 and under is provided, and religious education classes are provided for school aged children and teens. Volunteers welcome, as well as new class ideas that encompass all faith groups.
