The Unitarian Church of Los Alamos will honor Director of Religious Education Joyce Zaugg, who is retiring after more than 23 years of service. Zaugg will be honored during worship services and with an appreciation luncheon Sunday.
Zaugg began work at the church in January 1986, leading the congregation’s Religious Education program for a small number of children. The program has since grown to more than 70 children taking part in Sunday school classes, youth groups, children’s worship and social activities.
Zaugg and her daughter, Irene Zaugg, also developed a Harry Potter-themed Vacation Church School program, which celebrates its sixth year this summer. The program, designed as a branch school of “Hogwarts,” the school for wizardry in the popular J. K. Rowling series of books and movies, is a weeklong program with a sleepover, based on learning about influential figures and ideas in Unitarian Universalism.
Congregational President Kersti Rock said, “Some people have jobs, others have careers. For the truly fortunate, there is very little distinction between work and joy. I think Joyce Zaugg is one of those fortunate few.”
