Oh my goodness, how can it be May already? We’ve got a lot to do before we wrap up the church year! Here are some of the things to keep in mind for our religious education programming this Spring.
If you have children in your household and/or have a heart for our youngest members, be sure to participate in one of the upcoming “Growing Conversations.” Our religious education programming is definitely feeling the effects of our growth spurt. We need everyone to add their voices to the conversations about growth. Conversations are scheduled for specific Saturdays and Sundays in April and May. See the article elsewhere in the Heirloom for more information.
Our annual Senior Reflections/Bridging worship service is taking place on May 7th. If you have a youth in your household who is graduating from high school this year, be sure to contact Rev. Leslie to be included in this service. This is the chance for everyone at Heritage to celebrate our graduates as they move on to the next stage in their lives.
During the May 7th service we are also recognizing and thanking all of our religious education teachers who provided love, care & learning to our children and youth during 2016-17. When you see one of these wonderful people, be sure to thank them in person.

Yes, it takes a village (or a small army) to keep our children and youth engaged and safe! Be sure to talk with Rev. Leslie to learn how you can contribute your time and talent to our religious education programming.
Which leads naturally into our next topic — summer programming! We like to keep our summer theme a secret until our big launch day on June 18th however adults are needed to help plan throughout the month of May. So let’s just say that if you have an interest in “pocket monsters” you should get in touch with Rev. Leslie ASAP!
Spring and Summer are awesome at Heritage. Won’t you join us?
