Welcome, from the Director of Religious Education!
Welcome to Religious Education at First Church! My name is Meredith, Plummer, I am the Director of Religious Education.
If you are a first time visitor to First Unitarian Church and are curious about our Sunday school program, make sure to look at our prospectus for information on our curriculum. To the right and below, you will find a description of what your child will be learning, and doing, this coming Sunday, a list of upcoming events and opportunities, as well as a list of DRE created resources.
On Sunday mornings, please feel free to stop me and say 'Hi.' Or, email me with any questions you may have.
Looking forward to this Sunday!
