— The Universal House of Justice

Children's Classes for ages 6 – 11 nurture the tender hearts and minds of children through prayers and quotations, stories, songs, games, and art. These classes help draw out spiritual virtues which lay the foundation of a noble and upright character.

Devotional Gatherings

“Prayer and meditation are very important factors in deepening the spiritual life of the individual, but with them must go also action and example... both are essential.” 

 

— Shoghi Effendi

Devotional Gatherings are a time to come together in prayer to spiritually refresh ourselves and create bonds of unity and friendship.  These circles, in addition to devotions at regular Bahá'í gatherings, often include music and uplifting prayers and Writings and are open to all.

Study Circles

“The stronger the ties of fellowship and solidarity amongst men, the greater will be the power of constructiveness and accomplishment in all the planes of human activity.” 

 

— ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Study Circles are formed to discuss topics on spiritual matters and strengthen our individual capacities to be of service to our communities. The Ruhi Institute materials allow for reflection of themes such as the power of prayer, life after death and the nature of the soul. Service is associated with each book.
