Lots of Happenings at Valley Friends Meeting
The Big News: Our new roof and porch is now in progress! Parden our dust as we make our Meeting House solid, safe and dry for the next 30 years.
We took our Christmas card photo earlier this month. We are now busy Photoshopping those who missed it!.
Photo Tab update: If you click on the Photo tab on the menu above, you will be taken to just a few scenes of last month's Fall Cleanup Day and this month's birthdays. Also you will find links to last month's 5th Sunday breakfast, past Birthdays, the Meeting House tour and the July Baby Shower.
First Day School's "Burma Shave" signs are a big hit and we are working on brand new ones..
The support of St. Mary's Shelter for the Homeless begins a new drive. We are collecting cleaning supplies again, and pillows. When residents move to their new place they take their pillows with them and new pillows are always needed for the next success. To learn more about St. Mary's click on the Outreach tab above.
Note: The "Documents" page is being re-worked since most of the content is obsolete. If there is something you need to find, you can ask any of us.

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 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.
