Online RE- Rest Week

22 June 2020

Happy Monday Friends,

Believe it or not, we've made it to the end of the church year! While this year has been nothing like what was planned, it has been full of surprises, joy, and learning. I'm so grateful to everyone for their support of First Church and our Religious Education program. You and your kids make our program what it is. While we are breaking for summer, activities are still virtually going on at First Church! Weekly in RE we'll still be posting Children's Chapel and Mindfulness with Amanda on our Youtube channel( Storytimes and art will continue(with a few breaks here and there) on our Facebook Group( We'll be staying active on our social media channels, like Facebook and Instagram(Did you know we have an Instagram page( Outside of RE, Summer Forum has another great year planned! Visit our website( for the full list of speakers!

Since this is our last week, our theme is "Rest"! Rest is so very important. Everyone needs a break, being a person is exhausting, especially for our kids. Not only are they busy all day taking in new information, but they're physically growing as well! Teaching them how to stop and rest is a skill that can serve them throughout their lifetime. Think about how many adults you know who can't "slow down". Are they the healthiest people you know? Taking a break is important, and something we need to lift up with our kids. I hope as we take some time off, you all can find rest as well!  REST WEEK Activity Plan Link
