First Day School

The mission of Reno Friends Religious Education is to offer our youth opportunities to:

  • Be part of an environment in which they feel loved, safe, respected, and accepted.
  • Deepen their understanding of Quaker testimonies, practices, and history.
  • Explore and experience the Light within themselves and in others.
  • Actively participate and genuinely feel that they belong in our Quaker community.

Our Quaker First Day School (what Quakers call Sunday School) is now offering kids and teens Zoom classes on the second Sunday of the month, and in-person classes on fourth Sundays (potluck Sunday). Check the current newsletter for the latest update and any changes to the schedule.

Before class starts, the children sit in silent worship with their parents for the first ten to fifteen minutes of Meeting, and then quietly leave for First Day class.

Our current curriculum is focused on the Quaker Testimonies: Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship.

At this time, in-person classes will be held outdoors in our garden, for COVID safety.

Please contact the Meeting if you are interested in bringing children to the First Day School for the first time. You can email us at clerk (at) renofriends.org.
