First Day School

Our Quaker First Day School (what Quakers call Sunday School) is now offering kids and teens Zoom classes on 1st Sundays, and in-person classes on 4th Sundays (potluck Sunday).

Erin Higgs will be our lead teacher for in-person classes, when we expect to see most of our kids and will have a more elaborate lesson plan. The 1st Sunday Zoom classes will be taught by adult volunteers from the Meeting. On 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Sundays, Erin is available to hold class for any drop-in children.

Before class starts, the children sit in silent worship with their parents for the first ten to fifteen minutes of Meeting, until a teacher comes to get them. Current curriculum topics include 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.
