RELIGIOUS EDUCATION TEACHERS-Being a teacher is one of the noblest positions in the world. By touching the lives of their students and inspiring them for greatness, they are literally helping to shape the future of our church. All it takes is for one teacher to connect with one child, and his/her spiritual life will never be the same again. Therefore we need to show our gratitude and love for these very special people who help to shape our world and lead our children towards a stronger relationship with God. We are so blessed to have you all!!
