Core Activities:

 
Study Circles

Drawing extensively on quotation from the Bahá'í sacred writings like “Say: O brethern! Let deeds, not words, be your adorning,” and “A kindly tongue is the lodestone of the hearts of men,” Bahá'í study circles feature a series of workbooks designed to draw out human qualities that impact positive personal and social change. The first workbook is entitled "Reflection on the Life of the Spirit."

 

Devotional Gatherings

In addition to practicing private prayer and meditation, Bahá'ís gather in their homes and communities for collective worship. Devotional gatherings are scheduled regularly to share a devotional spirit of joy, love and fellowship. Readings are taken from the Bahá'í writings and the scriptures of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism and Buddhism. Participants are encouraged to bring their prayer books or favorite passages from the scriptures to share.

 

Children's Classes  (Story on NPR)

Children are the most precious resource a community has. Like young trees, children grow and develop in whatever way they are trained and according to the influences they experience. Bahá'í spiritual education for children is intended to nurture spiritually vibrant and healthy young people who will grow up without prejudice and with a positive, powerful sense that they are important to God and have a role to play in serving humanity.

 

Junior Youth Empowerment Programs

The Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program is a global initiative aimed at endowing youth ages 12-14 with the ability to recognize the spiritual significance of their actions and words. As members of a junior youth group in their own neighborhood, middle school-aged youth work together to develop the skills and attitudes necessary to become agents of change, beginning to understand that they have the ability to transform their own lives. Working together with their group leaders, group members identify service opportunities in their communities, allowing them the chance to continue to increase their capabilities and strengthen their bonds with each other and the community in which they live.
