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.

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.

Junior Interim Meeting is an opportunity for Philadelphia Yearly Meeting’s children to take part in God’s Big Idea for them.  Junior Interim Meeting builds on the Children’s Priority, a calling that the children of PYM hear as a group, and address with Quaker business methods. Learn More.

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.
