Nursery Care for infants and preschoolers
Children are always welcome in Meeting for Worship. However, during Meeting for Worship, members of Durham provide care for the smallest ones if parents or caregivers would like to accept this offer. We encourage toddlers to visit Sunday School as long as they feel comfortable or return to the nursery to play.
Sunday School for Children 2-12
Children ages 2-12 gather for Sunday School twice a month during Meeting for Worship on the first and third Sundays. We have been following a Montessori-inspired curriculum, that encourages children to wonder about questions of the spirit and work with hands-on materials to deepen their understanding of sacred stories and parables.
PASSAGES or Sunday School for Teenagers
High School age youth meet twice a month on the first and third Sundays during Meeting for Worship to discuss issues relevant to them. This year we are exploring many “why” questions, learning about the diverse faith communities in Maine and the Quaker Testimonies- Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Sustainability.
The Sunday School year will end for the summer on June 5, 2016 with “Children’s Day,” and begin again with “Rally Day” on September 18, 2016.
