The 1st Day School’s middle school program is currently teaching students about other religions. They are studying the religion one week and visiting the place of worship for the religion the next week. The students have learned about Catholics, Episcopalians, and Buddhists. In February, the children went to an African American Baptist Church after learning about historically black churches. On March 11, the class will go to the Baha’i Temple in Wilmette. The younger children are welcomed and cared for by Jan and A.J. each Sunday.

The Adult Religious Education group will be studying Meeting for Worship this month. Bert Fry will be facilitating the discussion on March 11 and March 18.
