February 2019 Service Project

For our service project this month, we supported the stewardship campaign with an art installation to go with the theme “Speak hope, share love.” We created a banner, pulled by paper airplanes.

After the airplanes were made, we had to take them outside for a test flight!

January 2019 Service Sunday

For our January service project, we prepared and held a bake sale to raise money for ArchCity Defenders, a St. Louis organization that provides legal and social service support to low income people facing prosecution. We had a lot of fun, talked about the connection between racism and our criminal justice system, and made $120 for ArchCity Defenders!

The Holidays in R.E. – 2017

We started off the holiday season with the hanging of the greens.  The Joy Boys entertained us with holiday carols while the children got to work decorating the tree. (Photos by Corinne Mann)

We then had so much fun at our Simple Gifts Workshop, where the children made stockings and ornaments, hand towels and bath salts, perfume and bird feeders. It was inspiring put watching the kids put in so much careful effort to make a beautiful gift.
