Here’s what you missed last Sunday…

Children and Youth reported back to their classrooms their weekly hour of exploration, learning and fun.  The Chalice Children completed their unit about the Earth.  The Roots and Shoots friends enjoyed the meadow.  Heather Petit taught the Coming of Age class about our Earth-Based sources and High School youth took (and discussed) the “Belief-O-Matic” quiz, which uses 20 theological and social questions to pinpoint what religion (if any) one may share common beliefs.

Here’s What’s Happening this Week…

Join our friend, music therapist, Tim Honig in a unique Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) workshop.  Learn how to practice using music and imagery for self for growth and wellness!

Sunday, May 6 
From learning how to tie a shoe, to learning to read, to losing a tooth, the Chalice Children will celebrate the changes that are happening as they grow.   The Roots and Shoots friends will continue a project of their choice.  Coming of Agers will meet with the DRE, and High School youth will talk about multigenerational leadership.

Mill Creek RE Volunteers are special, loved and appreciated.  If you are interested in volunteering to serve in our welcoming Religious Exploration Program, contact our DRE at  There’s a place for you in our circle of safety, love and learning.
