Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends
A Quaker Community at Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvainia

Plymouth Friends Meeting

There is a principle which is pure, placed in the human mind, which in different places and ages hath had different names. It is, however, pure and proceeds from God. It is deep and inward, confined to no forms of religion nor excluded from any, where the heart stands in perfect sincerity. In whomsoever this takes root and grows, of what nation soever, they become brethren.  John Woolman (1720-1772)

Cornerstone Café Dec 13th at 7pm featuring Bunny Barnes

Bunny Barnes first played guitar at age 16. By age 17, she was teaching folk and ragtime picking at Music Masters Studio in Southampton, PA. She was performing by the age of 18 with various bands. Though she continued to play throughout the years, performing took a back seat while she pursued her career teaching German in public school.

Status of repayment of construction project loan

We have been enjoying the fruits of the completed construction projects this past year; Meeting House restoration, kitchen remodeling, new heaters/air conditioning, and the new water management system. Each of these projects has improved our building's support of the community here at Plymouth as we support our activities with hospitality from the kitchen, provide comfortable meeting spaces as the summers become hotter and winters more unpredictable and restore our beloved Meetinghouse as well as protecting it from the increasing volume of rain.

The Monthly Meeting discerned that the projects needed to be initiated immediately and completed as soon as possible because of the damage caused by the termites and water in the soil below the Meetinghouse, the regularity of heater failures and the steady decline of the kitchen facilities making them difficult to clean and repair. Therefore, donations are requested from the community to payoff the  loan from Monthly Meeting’s invested funds.Donation may be sent to Linda White – Treasure PMM , 519 Fort Washington Avenue, Fort Washington, PA 19034 Make checks payable to Plymouth Monthly Meeting To the attention of the Construction Project Loan

Current status of the loan as of December 2019 is:

Completed construction project costs     = $132,501
Donations received as of Aug 2019         =  $58,626
Remaining balance due on the loan         = $73,875
