All Friends are welcome in worship!
The Children’s Religious Education Committee holds instruction for all young Friends and older young Friends, in Quaker practice and beliefs almost every Sunday from 9:45 to 11:00 am. Click here to view the schedule of lessons. Our caregivers will then take over supervision with quiet activities until it is time to go down to worship.
All young Friends who come with parents at 11:00 am, not planning to attend worship for a full hour, should proceed upstairs to the Friendship Room. They will be met by child care providers and quiet activities will be provided.
Children aged 5 and under are not expected to participate in worship. An adult should bring their young child/children upstairs either at 9:45 for instruction or at 11 am for childcare. Parents are asked to introduce the child/children to one of the teachers or caregivers before going downstairs. Child Care providers will will bring very young children down at the rise of meeting and returned them to their parents.
Each parent is the best judge of their own children’s developmental capabilities. Any concerns should be made known to the Clerk of CRE, and the Child Care Coordinator, so that the individual need of every child can be adequately addressed.
