Frederick Friends Meeting

You Are Welcome Here

Frederick Friends Meeting is a Quaker community brought together to know God and to answer that of God in everyone. We welcome people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, and faith backgrounds.

Take a tour of this website to learn more about us and the Religious Society of Friends (or Quakers), of which we are a part. And we invite you to join us in worship on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings at our meeting house in downtown Frederick.

—Isaac Penington (1667)

My first memory of God is from childhood, I was maybe 5 or 6 years old.  I was sitting alone on a hay wagon in the field, swinging my legs and wiggling my loose tooth.  The sun was setting, the sky was lit up with orange, red, pink, purple, and with a peek of the deep blue of night.  I felt enveloped and free, simultaneously.  The forest and fields that surrounded me were home and trees “spoke” to me, and I was pretty sure that God lived there.
