Volunteers and Staff

The RE program is planned and supported by the Religious Education Committee, the Director of Religious Education (DRE) and the RE Administrative Assistant (REAA).

The Religious Education Team consists of all those who volunteer in the RE Program and all curricula is taught by volunteers who work together as class teams

Families who enroll their children in the RE program are asked to make a volunteer commitment to the program.

Though our parents are expected to volunteer in the RE program, we also hope other adults will volunteer in order to have sufficient folks in the classroom and to give parents time to attend services, feel spiritually nurtured, and become connected to our program.
