Email or hand-deliver your course description to Cory Ness our Director of Religious Education. Once your class/event offering is received, it will be reviewed by the Adult Education Committee for inclusion. Know that the approval process is about being consistent with our mission statement, space availability, and church resources – not you.
Once dates, rooms and logistics have been worked out, you will be contacted by a “point person” to begin the publicity and sign-up process, usually a month before the event. The committee will look to you to direct the type/amount of support you may need from us. Please be sure to include your email address and phone number in your write-up. Cory will place a clipboard with each course sign-up sheet on the LFD table.
Feel free to make a copy of the registrants who signed up. It is suggested that you email the group (or call anyone w/o an email), reminding them of the date for the class’s first session and anything they need to bring or do beforehand. This information is also important if a class cancellation or postponement must occur.
**** Thank you so much for volunteering to share your time, interests, and experience with others in our spiritual community. Your efforts are deeply appreciated!****
To register for an Adult Education program you must sign up on the clipboard provided for the class on the LFD table in the narthex. Each class or presentation is dependent on meeting a minimum number of participants set by the facilitator.
