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?
Fall Schedule 2022
September 25th – Let your life speak. Quaker testimonies (SPICES): Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship will be discussed.
October 9th – The theme of the week is gifts. Beginning the discernment process on deciding the charity which will receive the proceeds of our Simple Supper. This lesson recognizes the God-given gifts in each of us. As Quakers, we look for opportunities to let our Light shine and share our gifts because this gift is not for me alone. When we are together, our gifts are like a mosaic, displaying the diversity of our community through their beautiful variety. Once we are grounded in the ideas of the lesson, the children will begin the discernment process to select a charity to receive the proceeds of November’s Simple Supper event.
