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, gender identities, 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 at 10:30 or Wednesday evenings at 7:00 at 723 North Market Street in downtown Frederick.  

Our life is love, and peace, and tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another, and not laying accusations one against another; but praying one for another, and helping one another up with a tender hand.

—Isaac Penington (1667)

In September 2017, Frederick Friends Meeting revised its policy on use of the meetinghouse to make clear that the building may be used by advocacy groups and for discussions on issues. However, use of the building is not compatible with meetings held in support of any political party or any political candidate.
