Religious Exploration 2022-2023 Successes
I am so grateful to this community for their support of the RE Program this past year. We had a small but mighty group of children who did so much this year!

Curricula offered:

  • Principles in Action
  • Tool Box of Faith
  • Festival of Lights
  • Exploration of Easter and Oestre
  • We took part in three multigenerational worship experiences
  • Hosted two parent meetings

Our Service Projects:

  • Food Drive
  • Christmas Cards
  • Sharing Ornament Project
  • Valentines Day Cards
  • Auction Art
  • Buddy Dog Donation Drive

Community/Connection Outreach Events:

  • Trunk or Treat (with a food drive)
  • Family Egg Hunt (over 60 children attended)

It was a great year, and thank you to each of our families who made the commitment to attend as often as they could. I look forward to building on our program next year with the assistance of the wonderful First Parish Community!

In Faith & Gratitude,

Michelle Cote
