Honolulu Friends Meeting offers an active First Day School (also known to non-Friends as "Sunday School") held from 10-10:50 at which time the children join those participating in the Meeting for Worship.  First Day School is taught by volunteer attenders or members of Honolulu Friends Meeting.  Two adults are present in the room during the lesson.  Children of all ages from toddlers to teens are welcome and teachers adapt their lesson to the ages of the children attending.  If you would like to become involved, please talk to a teacher or a member of the First-day School Committee.
