Summer Religious Education

Nic Kaplan, director of lifespan religious education

During the summer months, attendance and volunteering in Religious Education classes can vary greatly from week to week.  In an effort to reduce volunteer needs and still continue to build beloved community through adaptable, active religious education, we will move to a “one room school house” style RE class.  I have created another summer curriculum to fit the needs of our congregation this summer.  Let me tell you about it!

Nature Adventure is designed for any ages to come together and explore our value of interdependence through outside, nature-based stories and activities meant to help develop deep connections in our beloved community.  Between June 9th and August 18th, we will have RE every week (outside if at all possible).  Most weeks, we’ll have a story to explore together and then there will be games, crafts, or other activities to help explore our faith and grow.

Each week has a different “Day” name and image that will tie to the themes of nature, adventure, and interdependence.  For instance, June 9th is “Rainbow Day.”  We will read This Day in June together and then create rainbows in a variety of ways (prisms, kaleidoscopes, and chalk paint).  July 28th is “Star Day” and after we read You are Stardust, we will decorate stars to take home and remind us of the story.

I hope you will join us for this fun-filled summer.  If you are interested in volunteering with our Summer Nature Adventure program or in RE classes during the rest of the year, please email me at .
