Schedule

NOTICE Our current weekly schedule for worship is being updated to reflect our Sabbath Year beginning January 2023.  Please see the first page of the website for our current calendar.

(Sunday) Schedule:

Meeting for Worship, 10 to 11 am

Worship begins as soon as the first person is seated in our circle. At the rise of meeting we hear a report from the children/youth program if there was one that day, followed by announcements, and introductions. If you are new or visiting after time away please let us know and what drew you to worship with us–we want to welcome you!

See Fresh Pond Meeting’s Child Safety Policy here.

After Meeting for Worship:

First Sunday: Monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business — 11:30 to 1 pm

Our meeting for business is conducted in a manner similar to our worship. We listen carefully for God’s guidance — with mutual care and regard for one another’s wisdom. Ultimately, Quaker decision-making is Spirit-led, for together we seek unity with God’s will for the meeting. The co-clerks are the appointed servant leaders of our meeting.

Second Sunday: Potluck — 11:30 to 12:30 pm (check the calendar on the Welcome page, potlucks are not regularly scheduled in 2023, see below)

         Depending on our assessment about infectious disease risks we may have refreshments or a potluck, this will be announced in advance. You are invited to share a meal with us and join in conversation and fellowship.

Third Sunday: Spiritual Growth — 11:30 to 1 pm (check the calendar on the Welcome page)

We join together to learn about Quaker history, spirituality, practices, and other subjects that build the life of our community.  In 2023, our Sabbath Year of rest, reflection, and envisioning, we will offer varied opportunities to consider who we are and want to be as a Quaker spiritual community.  All are welcome. Please join the conversation and opportunity to share our stories and longings.

Fourth Sunday: Sharing From the Gender Margins Group — 11:30 to 1 pm
