LOFM Adult Religious Education

The Adult Religious Education Committee (AREC) strives to help members and attenders deepen their spiritual life while learning more about current and past beliefs and practices of Friends.

They do this by developing programs for Sunday mornings, 9:20-10:20 am that encourage LOFM F/friends to share their Quaker beliefs and practices with each other, learn about other spiritual beliefs and practices outside Quaker tradition, and explore social justice issues and how we might best become involved.
