Youth Religious Education
A Connection to War Torn Syria
As was noted last month, YRE has some new volunteers. One of them is Olga Hebert. Olga recently showed our older children (The Faith Group) a YouTube video when she worked with them on a lesson titled “The Power of Reaching Out.” You can see it, too; here is a link to the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmoPKZHdVVo The video itself was a powerful lesson in taping into one's gifts to inform and educate beyond the border of one's country.

Olga went one step further and brought materials for the YRE children to experience the type of art Nizar Ali Badr creates. The photos in the collage (below) are the works created by our children.
Thank you Olga!
