QUAKERISM 101 CLASS (September 29-November 10, 2019)
Would you like to learn more about Quaker faith and practice? Are you new to Friends? Interested in becoming a Friend? Wondering what this “Religious Society of Friends” thing is all about?
Come join us for a seven-week course of discovery that will take place on Sunday mornings at the meetinghouse from 9:00-10:15 from September 29 to November 10 (seven Sundays). CHILD CARE will be provided if you need it – but please sign up soon!
We will cover the basics… roughly the following topics:
(1) History: How We Got Here
(2) How We Worship
(3) Doing Business
(4) Joining, Becoming, and Being the Meeting
(5) The Challenge of Living as a Friend (Testimonies part 1)
(6) The Challenge of Living as a Friend (Testimonies part 2)
(7) Wrap Up & Celebration
These are short sessions, so yes, there will be homework! – readings and a few questions to consider before coming to each session. Come prepared! However the only required text will be our Intermountain Yearly Meeting (IMYM) Faith & Practice – and that will be available for loan or purchase if you’d like a copy.
What are you waiting for? To sign up, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
(1) Your Name:
(2) Contact Info (i.e., email address, etc):
(3) Do you need child care (yes / no):
(4) Do you need a copy of the IMYM Faith & Practice (yes / no):
(5) Can you attend all (or almost all) of the seven sessions (yes / no):
There will also be a sign-up sheet posted on the meetinghouse bulletin board. Please sign up by September 8.
