Youth Religious Education
We are extremely fortunate to have volunteers who allow our YRE program to expand beyond our Sunday YRE curriculum. Two excellent examples occurred in November. Karen Griffin led YRE on a field trip to Sleeping Turtles Preserve. If you haven't taken advantage of this gem of a park, located on the Myakka River, Google it and see what Karen provided our children as she led the nature walk-and-talk.
Barbara Smith and Marilyn Amick, along with youth volunteer Saxon Stanley, gifted their time and talent to the special YRE session, The Gift of Giving, the day after Thanksgiving. Using cardboard boxes and scraps of fabric that otherwise would have been recycled, the children created lovely boxes. They also decorated mini cupcakes to "gift" their parents when they came to pick them up.
Thank you Karen, Barbara, Marilyn and Saxon. We appreciate you!!!
