Children are an integral part of South Seattle Meeting!
While we hope that our children will learn to sit in quiet contemplation during these last minutes of worship, we know that this learning is a gradual process and can sometimes be a lot to ask. We warmly welcome children and their ministry into our Meeting.
All children are welcomed into our Meeting for Worship for the last 10 minutes. Those who are able to sit quietly are, of course, always welcome to stay in worship the whole time.
During Meeting for Worship, there are separate programs for the children. For babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, there’s a supervised group with age-appropriate activities and play. For older kids, our First Day School provides discussion and focused activities centered around a Quaker curriculum.
