First All-Summer RE Program Needs Volunteers!!

June 8, 2014

The RE program is excited to announce that we have purchased an air conditioner for Kidspace, and thus will be providing All-Summer All-Ages (3 years old through youth) RE this Summer from Sunday, June 22nd through Sunday, August 31st. We have also planned monthly "Outdoor RE" opportunities to help spruce up our own gated courtyard and garden! BUT we need your help to get it all off the ground! Especially in July, when our DRE will not be present, volunteers are needed to fill in gaps where no Helpers or Leaders are currently scheduled. Approximately 9 Helpers and 4 Leaders are still needed! (People may of course sign up for more than one date- please do! And, nursery care will be provided every Sunday for children 3 years old and younger).

Anyone can volunteer for Summer RE. You need not be a parent, or have children living at home or of "RE age". ALL adults, and adults teamed with youth as applicable, are invited to contribute. Let's make our "little church that does" a place where families can count on ongoing all-ages RE workshops and community ALL summer! (If you are interested in leading a workshop but do not yet have any topic ideas, Maria can provide some).

Below, listed in bold text, are the Leaders and Helpers needed for this summer's RE program. Starred text are given the most priority, as there are projected to be more families in attendance for these dates- or no DRE present to fill in gaps as they may occur. For "Outdoor RE" dates, please feel free to ask to lead and/or suggest a different activity- if you are available to lead one that day, but prefer not to work in the (gated garden) church grounds (planting, weeding, and general clean-up). All workshop materials are reimbursable/ provided through RE, pending prior approval. Please address any questions, concerns, and VOLUNTEER (pretty please!) by contacting Maria at Our children are waiting to get to know you (for many of you, even more!).
