Albuquerque Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
The Albuquerque Friends Meeting (AMM) provides weekly “First Day School” for children and youth of all ages. Curriculum coordinator, Elizabeth Freyman, a skilled teacher, has developed an appropriate curriculum for each age group. Guided by Elizabeth and adult volunteers, children engage in meaningful activities and discussion to deepen their own understandings of faith and its practice in their daily lives.
The group gathers at 10:30 to share introductions and to sing songs selected from a Quaker Song Book selected by the children. Groups based on age and interest then form for specific activities. Skilled child care is also available for infants and young toddlers. We average from 7-12 children weekly.
At approximately 11:20 AM the children and accompanying join the larger Meeting for Worship where they introduce themselves and share about their activities at the end of silent worship at 11:30.
Several times a year the Children's Committee organizes events such as Game Night or camping trips for the entire AMM community.
The Children’s Program Committee welcomes participation by members and attenders of Meeting. Adult volunteers are welcome to participate in First Day School. For more information or to volunteer please contact First Day School teacher, Elizabeth Freyman. firstname.lastname@example.org
