Many churches develop people’s spiritual gifts as part of their ministry. The board is pleased to announce that we’ve hired our own Laura Vilain to be our DRE Intern and commit as a church to support the development of her leadership skills in religious education. We’ve also hired our own Deb Levering to coach Laura this year. Laura will be attending courses from the UUA, as well as a religious education conference. Laura will be learning how to direct our RE program and our congregation will also be learning how to support her development. We fully expect and welcome mistakes, as this will indicate that we are all learning.
