7:00 a.m. Meeting for Worship
First Sunday of each month:
1:00 p.m. Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business
Meeting for Worship: Putting aside our daily concerns, we center on being open to Divine guidance; anyone who is moved by the Spirit may offer vocal ministry. Our worship may include spoken messages, or Friends may wait in expectant silence for most or even all of the Meeting.
Children and Worship: Children typically attend worship for the first 15 minutes. Child care is provided for the remainder of Meeting, but some older children and teens choose to stay for the full hour.
Entering Meeting for Worship: You may find Friends already gathered and singing if you enter the Meetinghouse before 11:00. All are welcome to join in hymn singing from 10:40 to 10:55 on Sunday mornings. If you arrive after Meeting has started, please wait until 11:15 to enter quietly and find a seat. If anyone is offering a message at the moment, please wait until he or she has finished speaking before taking a seat.
Closing Worship: Guests are invited to introduce themselves at the rise (close) of Meeting, to sign our guest book, and to join us for fellowship and refreshments at noon. On the first and third Sundays of each month visitors are invited to join us for a potluck lunch.
Early Meeting for Worship: Some Friends prefer to worship at 8:30 on Sunday mornings. This Meeting tends to be especially quiet, and is much smaller than the 11:00 Meeting. All are welcome.
Religious Education: Friends refer to Sunday School as “First Day School,” and programs for children and adults are held at 10:00, September through May. Our children’s First Day School program currently incorporates activites from the Godly Play Foundation.
