Soulful Branding

Check here for the latest on what is happening for children, youth, and families. For more general information about our programs click here.


Greetings All,

First things first, this is very important! Before you head off on your Labor Day adventures would you all please fill in the online safety information form asap. We must have new safety information, photo waivers, and etc. before your child participates in RE. To make the process easy, you may want to have your Physician name and contact information handy. The form is quick and easy and will take at max 3-5 minutes for each of your children but will save us many hours of manually entering information in the database.

Fine, Rev. Jamil! We did that, now what is this new blog stuff?
This blog is an effort to help reduce the influx of church emails arriving in your email box. This blog  is my point of communication to parents and youth. To make this work, everyone has to open the blog and find relevant information for their children and youth, otherwise we have to go to the other system and keep flooding your emails! Again, you will not receive many direct emails from me if the information is in this blog, please try to read through it carefully and let me know if you need anything added or have any corrections.
Each week you will receive an email from me with a link to the blog, you’ll find what is happening in your child(ren)’s program and any important announcements. Just scroll to their section.
