Happenings at Valley Friends Meeting

Last Sunday's meeting was quiet and friendly with new visitors and old Friends and friends. And NEW Friends:  Amy Brier and Amy Dawson are now officially members of our Meeting.

Remember, we decided to not to have a 5th Sunday Breakfast this month, but following Meeting for Worship we will have a luncheon and baby shower on July 30.   Nancy is going to try to not have the baby before then, but she is not necessarily in charge of timing!   Please join us to wish her well.

We are continuing to support St. Mary's Franciscan Shelter, and we are now collecting paper products: toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, lunch bags, zip locks, etc.

Finally, yes, there is something wrong with the ice maker. It is being addressed. Until then we will have ice the old fashioned way.  Stay cool.

Valley Friends Meeting is a member of Haverford Quarterly Meeting, which is part of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, and is affiliated with Friends General Conference (FGC).

We invite you to join us.

We worship in the traditional manner of Quakers in this plain, unadorned room. With no prearranged service we settle into silent worship, center our thoughts, and expectantly wait to enter into direct personal communion with God as we experience the power in this gathered group.

Silent prayer and meditation are helpful aids. As we enter into worship we center both mind and body. Recalling a remembered prayer, a meaningful quotation, or a Biblical verse can often lead us to the Divine Spirit. Each of us is seeking God's presence in ourselves and the gathered Meeting. You are invited to join us.

Worship may lead to new discovery or revelation which gives us fresh insight. At times we may be moved to share this gift with other worshipers and speak. As the silence continues we may feel closer to God and one another. At times the entire worship will be silent yet we still are bound together in the Unspoken Word.

The Meeting for Worship is concluded when two people on the facing bench, at the front of the room, shake hands. This gesture of loving communion spreads through the group. Following Meeting for Worship there is an opportunity for visitors to introduce themselves. At this time we share general announcements. We invite you to join with us in Divine Worship. You are welcome to join in our activities and to bring your children to our First Day School.
