Summer 2019 at South Church:
Religious Education continues through the summer for children of all ages! Our nursery is open, as usual, from 9:45-11:15 each morning. For children aged 4 and up we will have an all-ages program that is based on our school-year workshop model. This summer we will revisit the themes from this past year with hands-on exploration, incorporating outdoor time as much as possible! See you soon!!
Click here for the –draft- 2019-2020 RE Program Calendar. This fall our congregation will be following a single service schedule- one worship at 10am on Sunday mornings. (as opposed to 2 services at 9 and 11am). This shift means that our religious education program will be changing a little bit. Here’s a brief overview:
