Eugene Friends Meeting

Eugene Friends Meeting

of the Religious Society of Friends ("Quakers")

Childcare and First Day School

Our Children’s Program is called First Day School because historically Quakers call Sunday, “First Day”. The purpose of First Day School is to provide an inviting environment for children to connect with each other and the Spirit within, and to experience a sense of community.

Because we can’t all safely and comfortably gather, the Children’s Religious Education Committee will post our project plans and samples here each month.

We hope you will participate with us from home, and send us your thoughts and photos!

Express your inner light with a New Years Art Project. (Some of you might remember doing this project last year – fun was had by all.)
