SCHOOL YEAR 2019-2020

We will be in our New Religious Education Enrichment Center!
This is the new building located in the parking lot behind the church.  The address is 2755 Glimpse of Glory Road.

We will be able to offer the Program twice a week and have smaller class sizes.
Classes will be offered on Wednesday and Thursday evenings 6:00pm — 7:00pm.
Please consider this when making your commitments for next year.

We will offer all grades on both nights. Each family is asked to choose which night they will attend. Once you are registered, you must attend on that evening. You cannot switch between days once you are registered. You may change your night once and only if there is room on the other night. Class size is limited to 15.

Once classes are full, we will create a waiting list and offer to switch evenings if an opening becomes available.
Please complete the registration form and turn in EARLY to ensure you get your first choice.

Wednesday Grades 2, 4, 5, 6, and 8 are FULL!  Only 2 opening are left for Wednesday Grade 7.
Thursday classes are all open for all grades.

Wednesday Grades K - 8 are FULL. Pre-K is still open.
Thursday Grades Pre-K - 12 are all open.
