Children are the most precious resource a community has. Much like a young tree, children will grow and develop in whatever way they are trained and according to the influences they experience. Bahá'í Children’s Classes, which represent one of the "Core Activities" in the world-wide Bahá'í community, are intended to nurture spiritually vibrant and healthy young people who will grow up without prejudice and with a positive, powerful sense that they are important to God and have a role to play in serving humanity.
Children's classes in Louisville are currently taking place in individual neighborhoods and classes will resume at the Louisvlle Bahá'í Center this fall. Please refer to the Calendar or contact the Bahá'ís of Louisville by calling 502-267-0099 or completing the form on the Contact page.
In this video from the Bahá'í National Center, "What I Learned from Baha'i Children's Classes", Bahá'ís of all ages tell us what they learned in Bahá'í Children's Classes.

A Bahá'í Prayer for Children
"O God! Educate these children. These children are the plants of Thine orchard, the flowers of Thy meadow, the roses of Thy garden. Let Thy rain fall upon them; let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with Thy love. Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained, grow and develop, and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver. Thou art the Compassionate." -'Abdu'l-Báhá
