Register here for the March QuED Day so we can feed you! QuED Days begin at 9:00am with breakfast. Lunch is also included. The day finishes at 4:00pm.

QuED Days are designed as a series of opportunities for the sharing of Spirit-led ministry, along with the chance for informal connection, conversation, and fellowship.

All Young Adult Friends (ages 18-35) are invited to participate in QuED Days, and members and attenders of the host meetings are invited to participate as well. Here’s how it works:

How it works. Each month in 2017, there will be one Saturday QuED event, each hosted by a monthly meeting in a different part of New York Yearly Meeting. The morning will include breakfast, worship, and several twenty-minute talks given by invited speakers. The afternoon will include lunch, very lightly structured conversation opportunities, and sometimes other things—workshops, spiritual direction, games, music, and so forth. (See the daily schedule below.) The morning talks will be streamed live on Facebook live when wifi is available and recorded for later posting online. See below for the archive of these videos.
