  • Religious Exploration for children and youth in grades K-8:

This Sunday, December 1, our students will begin the holiday season by participating in a class called “Simple Gifts”!  This is an old FPS tradition that gives each of our students an opportunity to “shop” for a holiday gift to give to someone special in their life.  We will begin our class with a story and discussion about the spirit of giving, and then our students will be ready to visit our “Simple Gifts Store”!  They will choose a recipient for their gift and find something thoughtful to give to them from the items that members of our congregation have generously donated.  After a visit to the “Gift Wrapping Station” to wrap up their gift and create a handmade card, they will be ready to leave church with a holiday surprise for someone they love!  We hope that you can join us for this very special RE program event!

 

We still have a number of open RE Volunteer slots for Sundays this fall!  If you are interested in signing up to help in our nursery or our RE classes, please contact Jenna at or visit our Sign-Up Genius page to add your name to some dates!
