Religious Education in Action: Activism, Outreach and Parenting

  • How do we take the lessons of Quaker religious education beyond the meetinghouse?
  • Where do life-long spiritual formation and activism, outreach, and Quaker parenting intersect?

The program includes:

  • Worship in the manner of programmed and unprogrammed Friends.
  • Networking with Friends from across the Americas who come to share their emergent work.
  • Panel and Discussion, Workshops, Interest Groups
  • Fellowship, learning, and joy!
  • Bonfire evening and swimming in the pond!

NEYM is offering four half-scholarships! Ask your local meeting to invest in the ministry of Quaker RE by supporting your attendance, too. Contact Beth Collea, [email protected] for more information.

Register on the Powell House website.

Younger Friends are welcome and child care will be available upon request.

QREC is a grassroots network of Friends holding a sense of stewardship for life-long Quaker faith formation through religious education. We include Friends from all branches of our international Quaker family. We welcome all Friends involved in religious education. Join us in forming a community of practice to share resources, skills, gifts, questions and insights, and to support each other in the ministry of Quaker faith formation.
