Summer Program is scheduled for June 27 – July 1, 2022 / 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
This week long, cooperative program takes on a different theme each year. Participants engage in a number of activities that are centered around that theme. Some activities include short lessons, crafts, music, and outdoor games. This year, our theme is 350 Years of Quakers in North Carolina!
We hope Friends of all ages will join us as participants and/or volunteers for this wonderful week of learning, fun, and fellowship.
Contact Karin Heller for registration forms. [email protected]
*Activities will take place both indoors and outdoors. Covid safety protocol (including masking) will be followed.
Young Friends (Grades 5-12)
Young Friends will meet on Sunday at 3:15 p.m. for some fellowship, games, and planning.
Childcare on Sunday Morning
Are you planning to attend in-person, semi- programmed Meeting for Worship with a child/children this week? Childcare is available for children ages 4 and under in the nursery beginning at 10:30 a.m.. Because this age group is currently not eligible for the vaccine, we ask that families enter the building through the porch door (next to the kitchen and Fellowship Hall) and take their children directly to the nursery.
The capacity in the nursery is currently 7 people. We ask that those who intend to use childcare register in advance so that we can ensure there will be space. Please email me to register. Children 5 and older are invited to sit with their grown ups during Meeting for Worship. Activity packets and crayons will be made available.
Summer Adult Forum Series
This Summer we will use Quakerspeak videos and discussion questions to learn more about Quakerism. All are welcome.
Below you will find the tentative schedule, and video links for next Sunday. We will watch the videos together, but Friends may choose to watch them in advance or on their own.

We will also try to watch “Are Quakers Christians” since we ran out of time last week. It’s a lot, but I think we can do it! https://tinyurl.com/yyreszr8 https://tinyurl.com/mpjd9nys https://tinyurl.com/yc5avxr5
