Children and Families Program

The Children and Families Program provides opportunities for children in grades K-5 to gather for worship, fun, fellowship, learning, and service; we endeavor to form lifelong bonds to community, to God, and to the Society of Friends.

Coming Up Next: Spring Continuing Sessions

We will gather in Caln Quarter, at The Jewish Community Center, on March 24, 2018!

The Children’s Program will gather in community at Spring Continuing Sessions!  After joining with the whole community for worship, the children will transition to their morning activity, which will be a Faith & Play story, “Love’s Way,” exploring Friends testimonies. Following the story, we’ll have a Spirit-led discussion and do an individual art response. We’ll continue to explore the 2018 PYM Sessions theme, “How our lives speak”, and how the children express stewardship of the Earth in their daily lives. After lunch, there will be free play and space to rest or hang out with friends. Some families may choose to attend the “March for Our Lives” vigil in the afternoon, but the Children’s Program staff will remain at the JCC and will welcome children until the end of Sessions that day.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Welcome to the Children's Program

Participating in the Children and Families Program gives children and parents language, tools and activities to use at home. This program offers resources for families, and networks of families to grow in the light together. Check out our event list to see all our program events for this year!

Our volunteers, lovingly called Friendly Adult Presences (FAPs), are essential to the more elaborate programs, such as Annual Sessions and Continuing Sessions. Volunteers can take the role of teacher, supporters and assistants, workshop instructors, craft leaders, worship leaders, song leaders- you name it! We are always searching for Adults and Young Friends (High School) to share their light with our youngest Quakers. Learn More. You may also be interested in our Youth Programs Internship.
