Kids are welcome at Agape dinner church & services! Our services are intentionally intergenerationally friendly for kids. Several adults are present during services to supervise preschool and elementary school youth in doing art and other faith formation projects. Children are welcome to participate as much as they desire in the services themselves. Each service has a "Children's Moment" for kids :)
Zen meditation with guiding teacher Mike Fieleke.
Mindfulness fills a great need for adults and youth to find physical, mental, and emotional calm in these busy, often overwhelming times. Mindfulness promotes non-judgmental awareness of the present moment, and fosters calm, better concentration, and more openness. Youth and adults learn how to be kinder to themselves and others, more confident, and less judgmental. This monthly Zen Zone, a partnership between the Waltham Public Library and Agape Spiritual Community, will engage in and practice a variety of mindful and contemplative practices. Zen Zone will be facilitated by Rev. Matt Carriker (Protestant Chaplain at Brandeis University and Pastor at Agape Spiritual Community in Waltham) and other guests.
Waltham Public Library

The next book is "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz. All are welcome whether you've read the book or not. Please reach out to the Library for book availability. For more information click here.
