June 2017

Many thanks to EVERYONE for making the 2016-2017 RE program so successful.  My thanks go out once again to all our volunteers and mentors.

School year teachers: Molly McGaughey (7-12 grade and teen OWL), Matt Sayre (3-6 grade), Katherine Colburn (K-2 grade), Megan Reece (nursery), Carolyn Ferguson (OWL 5-6), Christopher Renner (OWL 5-6), and Jen & Matt Campbell (teen OWL).

Summer World Traveler Tour Guides for 2016: Sylvia Beeman (Bug Hotels), Tom Phillips (insects in the world), Mark Clarke (Iceland), Sabrina Bowker (Japan), Dan Swenson & Brent Garrison (Pillsbury canoeing), Eli & Kim Martinson (maps), Brice Hobrock (ancient Rome toga party), Christopher Renner (Italy), Ellen Meyer (Finland), Diane Barker (Galapagos), and Deirdre Greeley (Key West).

An extra thank you goes to the entire fellowship for donating to food drives and sock drives, coming to family fun events like Pride and St. Patrick’s Parade, and bringing kids to, or helping at, Parent Night Out/Kid Night In. Your participation in the program is what makes everything worthwhile.

As always, a special shout out to Sylvia Beeman. She asked me to teach a Sunday school class 15 years ago and I’ve been loving it ever since.

Our summer program begins in June which means all students meet together for class where guest “tour guides” from within the congregation lead students on all kinds of adventures. We’ll camp in the church yard, canoe at Pillsbury Crossing, head to the international space station, build our own Frisbee Golf course, visit Washington DC, and more!

Here’s our June Schedule:
June 4: Bon Voyage Party & Potluck – bring a dish to share
June 11: Frisbee Golf (William Mitchell)
June 18: International Space Station (Mark Clarke)
June 26: Canoe at Pillsbury Crossing (Dan Swenson) we’ll camp at the church on Saturday night

Join us for a camp out at the fellowship on Saturday, June 25. You can pitch your tents in the back yard, make s’mores and sing around the campfire. On Sunday morning we’ll have pancakes and leave early for canoeing at Pillsbury Crossing.
