Activities and Schedule The purpose of the Baha'i club is to bring together Baha’is and friends interested in advancing the principles above, to explore the Baha’i Writings and discuss deep and meaningful topics of relevance to contemporary society and to work in solidarity with others to serve the greater community. Some of the Core Activities that club members are engaged in include Study Circles, Devotionals, Children Classes and Junior Youth Classes. Study Circles explore the teachings of Baha’u’llah and provides activities for serving the community. They promote individual and collective spiritual progress. Devotionals are gatherings to pray, read from sacred writings, and discuss spiritual topics while bringing people from diverse backgrounds together. Children Classes are classes open to all children for spiritual education. The Junior Youth Classes engage adolescents ages 11-14 of all or no religious affiliation to creatively think about world, community issues and build skills that can contribute to the community. Other activities include Feast, every 19 days a meeting is held for the community to pray, consult, and socialize, and Firesides, an open discussion for asking any questions and to learn about the Baha’i Faith.
