Spirit Play Trainingsspiritplay

As of now, all spots are taken for our August 8 training at MLUC. However, another training has been scheduled for the preceding Saturday, August 1, in Cherry Hill.

If you were interested in our training but had a schedule conflict, please let Este (), our Religious Education Assistant, know ASAP so she can register you for the August 1 training. Register before it fills up!

We are thrilled to see how much interest there is in Spirit Play!


OWL Trainings

There are many OWL trainings being offered in our region this summer. In addition to the training for elementary and middle/high school curriculum here at MLUC on August 7-9, these trainings are available:

  • July 10-12 Elementary and Middle/Senior high -- Nashua, New Hampshire
  • July 24-26 Middle/Senior high and YA/Adult -- Cleveland, Ohio
  • August 14-16 Elementary and Middle/Senior high  -- Murray Grove, Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey
  • August 21-23 Elementary and YA/Adult -- Arlington, Virginia

We hope to have sufficient team sizes so that no one feels pressured to be present every single week. Therefore, we are building a team of trained OWL facilitators who can help in the classroom and with parent support groups, which will meet concurrently with OWL sessions.

Please contact Rev. Julie-Ann () with questions. Notify Este, our RE Assistant, to register for one of these trainings. Funding comes from our RE budget, and we ask only that you commit to being a member of the teaching team this upcoming year.


Teacher recruitment is ongoing, and the Church School Committee will be reaching out to people. If you are able to commit one or two Sundays per month, we would love to have you on a team! Sign-up sheets are in the Atrium at MLUC, and you are welcome to contact Rev. Julie-Ann with questions about where your gifts may be most beneficial.
