You’re Invited!

We will hold our Annual Easter Egg Hunt in the New Garden Friends Meeting Cemetery on Easter Sunday at the rise of 11 a.m. semi-programmed Meeting for Worship! Children are invited to bring a bag or basket and join the fun.

All participants should remain masked, maintain appropriate social distance, and stay with their pods/family groups.

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.

Young Friends (Youth in grades 5-12)

We had a wonderful preliminary meeting on Sunday. Young Friends were excited to start planning programming and service projects for themselves, and already have some fun activities in the pipeline.

Join us next Sunday, April 10, at 3:15 p.m. for a Tie Dying Extravanza! Bring your own pre-washed, white (or lightly colored) t-shirt and join the fun.

The following Sunday is Easter. Young Friends are invited to (quietly) meet on the benches outside the meetingroom at 11:30 a.m. to help the Easter Bunny hide eggs for the Easter Egg hunt at the rise of Meeting for Worship.

April 10: Join us for an Adult Forum brainstorming session. Do you have topic or speaker suggestions? Share them during this Adult Forum. Ideas will be reviewed by the Religious Education Committee.
