The Religious Education Team for Children and Youth provides essential lay support for the DRE and RE programs and events for children and youth, as well as serving as a creative think-tank for policy and programs. The committee works on improving curricula and provides ongoing assessment of our annual events to make them more vital, inclusive, and meaningful. Members usually commit to a two-year cycle. The current team consists of Elsa Kapitan-White, Sue Steinhardt, Charlie Burrus, and Jessica Holland. All meetings are open and all are welcome to attend.
The Adult Programs Team works alongside the DLFD in finding and implementing a wide variety of programs that serve the community's needs for spiritual growth, relational development, and social action in the community at large. Current team members are Chairperson Woodie Lane, Eileen Allen, Robert Barnett, Steven Braun, Liz Gilbert, Kamal Maheshwari, Jon Naylor, Pam Perry, and Greg Rea.
Family Ministry is a new program within Lifespan Faith Development. Its leadership team is still being formed. Its purpose is to welcome families as they enter the community, to support parents as they nurture their children, and to support the Religious Education Program for Children and Youth.
Our Childcare Coordinator is Jessica Pierce. She and other childcare personnel are available every Sunday morning from 9:00 - 1:00 p.m. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
