  DEVOTIONAL GATHERINGS
   

Devotional Gatherings are regularly scheduled meeting times of collective worship - the exaltation of God - and sharing a devotional spirit of joy, love and fellowship. Readings are taken from the Baha'i Writings and the Holy Scriptures of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Zoroastrian, and Buddhism. Participants are often encouraged to bring their prayer book, Baha'i Scripture, Bible, Qur'an, Torah, and selections of other Sacred Writings to share and prayer requests are often honored. Musical selections are often diverse, coming from a variety of cultures and styles. There is no established ritual, no request for funds, and light refreshments are often served.

  CHILDREN'S CLASSES
   

Children are the most precious resource a community has. Much like a young tree, children will grow and develop according to the influences they experience. Baha'i children's classes are intended to nurture spiritually vibrant young people who will grow up without prejudice and with a powerful sense that they have a role to play in serving humanity.

The Writings of the Baha'i Faith affirm that spiritual education is at the heart of an educational process that leads to the elevation and transformation of the human spirit. It is through the conscious effort of loving families, combined with a systematic offering of classes based upon the guidance that has been given to humanity by a loving God, that the spiritual development of children can be nurtured and developed.

  STUDY CIRCLES
   

Study Circles are regular gatherings of people interested in an in-depth and systematic study of the Baha'i Writings. The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of the Holy Word, begin to comprehend the meanings and then find ways to apply the Word to our lives through spiritual transformation and service to humanity.

The frequency and duration of each study circle are set by the group, and a facilitator serves to maintain the focus and pace. Every participant in the group also makes a commitment to action or service.

  FIRESIDES
   

A fireside is an informal discussion of topics such as Bible prophecies, the nature of God and His Messengers, the relationship of the Baha'i Faith to other religions. Usually they are hosted by Baha'is in their homes. Light refreshments are generally served. It's perfectly all right just to come and listen, make new friends, and learn new things.
