Please read this letter thoroughly in preparation for our week together.
Last year we had a lot of fun and came together as a community to learn more about the Quaker Way. This year, we’ll continue taking advantage of outdoor education opportunities at the site and blending them with other forms of Quaker teaching and learning. And once again, we have an enthusiastic and skilled group of teachers and support staff. Continue reading “Welcome Letter to Children’s Program Families 2019”

Clerk’s Call to
PACIFIC YEARLY MEETING 73nd ANNUAL SESSION
Walker Creek Ranch, Petaluma, California
Friday, July 12 to Wednesday, July 17, 2019
Dwelling in Truth and Trusting Divine Spirit
We are called to “dwell in Truth.” Living in Truth is an experience and a confident dependence on the guidance of Divine Spirit rather than a set of beliefs to be accepted. “Abide in me and I in you” is the promise we find in John 15:4. Indeed, God is always reaching out to us, always present; it is we who need to come back to the Presence again and again. Continue reading “Clerk’s Call to Annual Session 2019”
The Latin American Concerns Committee calls your attention to two upcoming opportunities for you to become involved with Friends projects relating to Latin America and Latin Americans.
The first is a dinner in support of the Undocumented Student Scholarship Project. The program and dinner will take place on March 23, 2019, at Sacramento Friends Meeting. See the attached invitation for more details.
Nine years ago Sacramento Friends Meeting (Quakers) initiated the Undocumented Student Scholarship Project for students at our nearby Sacramento State University. Since that time we have provided scholarships to 28 students in a variety of majors, both undergraduate and graduate. Each scholarship consists of $1000 per year until graduation. Most of the support for the Undocumented Student Scholarship Project has come from donations from individuals and Friends Meetings. Several of our former scholarship recipients have begun to contribute as well.
We hope to see you at the dinner on March 23.
The second is a one-week Teaching English Experience taking place in Antigua, Guatemala, January 3-11, 2020. This is an opportunity for you to make deep, personal connections and share cultural perspectives while providing English lessons to students supported by the Guatemala Friends Scholarship Program. An optional highland tour is also available. For more information see the attached flier or contact Martha Dugan firstname.lastname@example.org. For the highland tour contact Donna Smith at email@example.com.
The Teaching English Experience is a soul satisfying week of hard work which is both fun and rewarding. Our students are eager to learn English and your efforts provide them with a chance to experience the joys of one-on-one learning. The only requirements are an open heart, patience and a desire to help a Guatemalan student. The ability to speak a little Spanish and previous teaching experiences are helpful but not necessary.
