Over a year has now passed since Heritage closed its doors, due to the pandemic, and over a year has passed since RE families have been able to gather in person. Zoom classes are the next best thing, but online connections cannot replace physically being in each other’s presence.
Thankfully, the weather is warming, vaccinations are increasing, and COVID numbers are declining. And, with these better conditions, RE will now be able to offer opportunities for families of all types and sizes to gather in person.
The Interim RE Committee has begun planning for monthly family activities, held at HUUC. These activities will be outside, masked, socially distanced, and COVID-friendly in all other aspects. As of this writing, our first event is about to happen: an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt, hosted by the Kpaeyeh and Meyer families. (Held Sunday, March 28.)
The next planned event is a Bird Feeding event, to be held on Sunday, April 25 from 3-5 pm. A “make your own birdfeeder” craft is being planned, as well as bird identification activities and snacks. Drop by any time between 3-5 to join the fun.
Family activities are designed to best suit kids ages 3-10, but all congregants are welcome, including all ages and family types.
