Planning a Children's Sabbath in your Community

CDF produces an annual National Observance of Children's Sabbaths Manual which may be downloaded free of charge. We ask you, however, to complete the brief questionnaire in Connecting with the Children’s Sabbath to help us know who the materials are reaching and what you might plan.  

Although the National Observance of Children's Sabbaths weekend is traditionally held the third weekend of October, the worship resources, prayers, actions, and other resources in the Children's Sabbaths manual may be used throughout the year. Please download this year's resources below.
