I’m afraid to declare that spring is finally here lest I bring on another snowstorm! But the tulips are blooming and the redbuds are about to burst out in all its purple glory and I’m reminder that 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.
Our annual Senior Reflections/Bridging worship service is taking place on May 20th. If there is 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 and welcome them into adulthood.
During the May 20th service we will also recognize and thank all of our religious education teachers who provided love, care and learning to our children and youth during 2017-18. 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 in mid-June; however, adults are needed to help plan throughout the month of May. So let’s just say that we will be “constructing” a lot of fun this summer! (Watch your email for information on saving some household packaging materials to be recycled into some cooperative projects!) Contact Rev. Leslie to be part of the planning team.
Finally, I will be out-of-town from May 10th through 13th. Our family will be celebrating our younger son Alex’s graduation from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Spring and Summer are awesome at Heritage. Won’t you join us?
