Adult Forum
Hybrid Adult Forum went well! Moving forward, Friends may join us in the parlor, or on Zoom. Zoom links will continue to go out with Religious Education updates and information.
Contact Karin Heller if you would like to receive links. [email protected]

Join us October 2, and October 9 for New Garden’s own version of “heART journaling”. Art supplies (paper, markers, crayons, scissors, etc.) will be provided for Friends joining in person, but you are welcome to bring your own. We will continue working with the theme of grief and will begin with a blessing or query, and reflection before moving into journaling and intention setting. While Friends are welcome to share their art, there is no pressure to do so. Read more about art journaling in the article linked below.

Contact Karin Heller for more information about any of our Religious Education programming.

Children are Welcome at Meeting for Worship
All children are invited and encouraged to join us for Meeting for Worship. Crayons and activity packets are available in the foyer outside the Worship room.
Childcare is available for children 0-4 years of age beginning at 10:30 a.m. until the rise of Meeting for Worship. Please contact Karin Heller if you plan to use childcare to ensure coverage.

A greeter/member of the Religious Education Committee will be in the foyer outside the Worship room to direct newcomers and visitors with childcare needs. Look for a brightly colored name tag.

Volunteers Needed!
The Religious Education Committee is currently looking for Adult Forum facilitators, childcare volunteers, and Friends who are interested in leading Intergenerational First Day school lessons. We especially need childcare volunteers.
All of our Religious Education programming at New Garden Friends Meeting is meant to be a cooperative community effort. We need you!
Please email me if you would like more information about volunteering. [email protected]
