Happenings at Valley Friends Meeting

At Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, held September 10, 2017 those present approved the following official statement of the Valley Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

Valley Friends Meeting opposes the Trump administration's decision to
end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. We
believe that it is morally wrong to threaten and target these individuals
who have become part of our communities with deportation. We support
long-term solutions that include a humane immigration policy.


Our First Day School teacher, Maria Damato reports that her niece, Danielle, and family in Texas is devastated by the hurricane. They are currently homeless, living off the kindness of friends and strangers. Their clothes are ruined, their shoes, worthless. They have two school age kids. The fastest way to get help to them is to email them an Amazon Gift Card. Amazon seems to have delivery down pat. You all know how to get to Amazon. Their email address is:

In case you are missing our Meeting House, or you would like to visit before you visit, the "Photos" tab above will take you on a virtual tour. There also is a link there to the July 30 baby shower for the Farrens.

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. Checking today, the collection bins are filling up now, but there is alway room for a bit more; please think of this the next time you are shopping. To find out more about St. Mary's and other organizations we support see our "Outreach" tab above.

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.
