Children’s Religious Education Committee

2020 Simple Supper Event Details

The Children’s Religious Education program provides opportunities for children from preschool through eighth grade to gather for Sunday worship, fun, fellowship, learning, and service. It is our goal to help our youngest friends form lifelong bonds to community, to Truth and Light, and to the Society of Friends. Each year, our youngest Friends walk away with a deep sense of the history of Quakers, Quaker beliefs and ideals, and what it means to be a Quaker today.

We aim to support each child’s personal journey as they ask:  What does it mean for me to be Quaker?  What do I believe?

Program schedule:  During the 2020-2021 year, our Children’s Religious Education program is virtual until further notice. This CRE-at-a-Distance will feature a theme each month focused around one of the Quaker SPICES. Each month will feature three components for children and their families:

  • (1) a Spiritual Care Package, including an all-ages activity, any needed materials, and quotes to ponder;
  • (2) a few Quaker Quiet Minutes, which are short videos of guided meditations, mindfulness activities, or readings of stories that children and families can use to get in touch with the Light whenever they like; and 
  • (3) a socially distanced gathering for those who would like to get together. 

Here is our calendar:
