Our First Day Meetings follow a general schedule through each month, thus giving those who plan to attend some time to prepare for learning and sharing. We hope that each Sunday's Adult Education session offers insight and opportunity to practice Quaker values and beliefs. For 2019 we hope to cover the Gospels, Quaker Testimonies, and Nonviolent Communication. Please join us for any or all of our adult education sessions, followed by silent worship.
