What's New

Friends are invited to worship together outside on the meeting house grounds, while maintain safe distancing. Friends are encouraged to wear a mask. Virtual Worship will also take place on Zoom, per usual. But note that we most likely won't be doing a hybrid meeting, but rather run 2 separate Meetings for Worship.

This in-person meeting will be followed by a workday forum hosted by the House and Grounds committee. All are welcome to participate in either event.
