Religious Education and Lifelong Learning

We believe that human beings can grow spiritually, morally, and intellectually throughout their lives. We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. We invite you to explore our Lifelong Learning opportunities and contact our religious educator to get connected.

The religious education program is planned, implemented, and overseen by the Lifespan Religious Education Director, with input and consultation from volunteers and parents. Contact Erica Shadowsong at for more information or questions.

*All minors are required to be registered to participate in religious education classes and events; please visit our registration form here.
