Our youth activities promote Quaker values and help build lifelong friendships.  We seek a better understand of ourselves and others by listening to God's word, listening for God's word, and playing together.

If you have questions or want to learn more about our youth programs, contact us: seavillequaker@gmail.com

First Day school is the same time as Meeting for Worship 10am-11am

*Please join us any week you are able.  All of the Godly Play stories offer an enriching experience whether you attend every week or once a month.  

*You will notice that we repeat some of the stories.  We do this so the children get to hear the story through different voices and so those who might have missed a week have a chance to hear the stories.

*SCROLL DOWN for the activities Seaville's children participate in year round!!!

Responsibilities of monthly meetings

Monthly meetings have a special responsibility to bring children and adults under their care into full participation in the life of the meeting and into an understanding of the beliefs and practices of the Religious Society of Friends.  Meetings are expected to offer religious education programs for their members and attenders.  Such programs can include special study groups, worship sharing opportunities, service projects, and Meeting libraries, but the cornerstone of religious education for most Meetings is a thriving First Day School program for children, youth, and adults.  These efforts will succeed only if members actively support them by full participation, rather than leaving parents to cope alone with the religious education of their children. 






Our youth began fundraising for the Souper Bowl in 2009.  Financial support and non-perishable items have been collected for St. Casimir's Food Pantry in Woodbine, Food Bank of Southern NJ in EHT, and the food pantry in Somers Point.  A B-I-G thanks to the members/attenders/guests of Seaville who have continued to make this event a success for the community.  

Souperbowl is a national fundraiser that helps develop a better understanding of the balance between hunger and wealth in America.



First Day School


- our religious education program for children (2yrs and up) takes place during adult worship.  We do crafts, role play, write plays, create diaramas, cook, and just have a good time learning together.



Heifer Project International


- we focus on the efforts of Heifer to build sustainable lives for people through purchasing livestock and renewable resources.  We collect funds twice a year for this organization. 



Beach Meeting

- time for connecting with the Divine and with one another.

-held one day in the summer to bring the children together again 


2010 March Sessions banner            

The children of the First Day School designed and completed this banner for PYM March Sessions 2010.   The theme was "We Make the Road by Walking".

Sam, Jake, Fionna, Margaret, Colleen, Alma and Eliza were assisted by Betsy, Mel, Jill, Kara and Sue. 



 2009 PYM Annual Sessions Banner




 Annual Sessions was March 27-29, 2009 at Arch Street Meeting house and our children designed a double sided banner for this event.  The theme was "Living Up To The Light"  and the kids choose to focus on our beautiful oak tree and our up-and-coming garden.  Look closely at the handmade food items and the details on the tree, and be sure to ask the kids about the inspirations.

In 2010 the children will again design and create a banner to hang in the rafters of Arch Street!


Community Garden  2009

"The Peace Garden" was the name chosen on Feb 1, 2009 at Peace and Social Concerns meeting.
