Resources for Religious Education

The Quaker Religious Education Collaborative

The Quaker Religious Education Collaborative (QREC) is a grassroots network of Friends from all branches of Quakerism who hold a sense of stewardship for life-long Quaker faith formation through religious education.

The web site offers many resources, including videos, as well as links to additional resources.

A few samples:

  • Considerations When Choosing and Using Books in First Day School
  • An Introduction to the Life of Jesus for Quakers, Inspired by the Musical Godspell
  • Quaker History Children’s Plays, by the children of Southern Illinois Friends Meeting
  • Singing the Christmas Story
  • Nurturing Children’s Spiritual Lives
