Children’s Religious Education Committee

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?

OUR 2023-2024 SCHEDULE

First Day Programs begin at 9:45am. Community service projects begin at 11am on the first Sunday of the month. Child care is offered each week during meeting for worship.
