Religious Education

We come together to share the message of Jesus to work to foster Christian Community, to lead children to worship and prayer and to motivate them to serve others. We acknowledge that parents are the first and foremost teachers of their children’s faith. We welcome the opportunity to work in partnership with parents to fulfill our mission.
