Faith Formation Text
After many meetings and surveys, and a review of Diocesan Guidelines, we have decided that the best option for Elementary R.E. this year will be a hybrid option containing weekly lessons at home in combination with in-person meetings once a month here in Genesis Hall or perhaps outside (weather permitting). To register for R.E. click here. Elemetary R.E. will start October 4th so please register by September 30.
Thank you for your flexibility. Thank you to those who have already registered!
Contact Kate Chittum in the church office with any questions.
No Room at the Inn
Spurred on by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Our Annual No Room at the Inn Nativity Exhibit and Gala is going Virtual this year!! What does that mean? It means we will "get together" virtually to have some fun, celebrate the goodness of the incarnation and...help our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness.
Click here or on the nativity above for more information about our beneficiaries, our event, and registration. Although our event is free, click here to support our efforts...because everyone deserves a safe place to call home.
