Children’s Religious Life Program

The Children’s 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.

Sessions

Children’s Sessions at Annual Sessions
Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA

Our largest meeting for fellowship and business is a 5 day long residential gathering each year in the summer. Children gather for Friendship, Community, and to explore their lives as Quakers.

Welcome to the Children's Program

PYM’s children’s program is formulated on the concept of Servant Leadership- ensuring that the children’s spirit and leadings can be followed through the simple and direct teachings of Quaker process. In addition, there is a focus on developing the capacity of Friends who work with kids, and the family unit as a spiritual community.

The Children’s program supports Quakerism as a practice for the whole family, and community that includes all types of families.

Family overnight is a one night sleepover for the families with kids K-5th grade.  There is multigenerational activity for the whole family, a dinner together, free time to play, bedtime stories, Giant First Day School, worship, a chance for adults to spend time with other parents. Family Overnight is an amazing chance to spend time with our Friends community in joy and sharing. Learn More.

We call our volunteers Friendly Adult Presences (FAPs), and without them none of our program would be possible. We are always searching for Adults and Young Friends (High School) to share their light with our youngest Quakers. Learn More.
