Planning a Children's Sabbath in your Community

To assist communities with planning and implementing their Children's Sabbaths Celebration, CDF produces an annual National Observance of Children's Sabbaths Manual: A Multi-faith Resource for Year Round Child Advocacy which may be downloaded free of charge.

Though 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 are intended for use throughout the year. Please download this year's resources below.
