Volunteering with Religious Exploration

Volunteers are an essential part of our RE program: our Religious Education Committee oversees our program and activities; classroom volunteers help with Sunday activities a few weekends per year; volunteers help in our library, and with other unique programs.

Chalice Lighters

On Sunday mornings, one of the ways we create sacred space is to light our chalice, a symbol of our faith, accompanied by a short piece of text.  Children, youth, families, or anyone in the congregation can help create our sacred time together by reading or speaking those words.  If you would like to be one of our chalice lighters, please email Katharine at
