Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Saratoga Friends Meeting

Meeting for Worship and First Day School
each First Day (Sunday) 10 AM
All are welcome to share our worship.

Friends believe there is that of God in each individual and that we can directly experience that of God within ourselves and each other. All Friends’ practices, witness, and testimonies – simplicity, integrity, equality, community, and peace - stem from this basic belief. 

Our form of worship reflects our belief that the Divine Spirit speaks directly to each individual soul. We are all responsible for ministry; we have no paid clergy. While we have advices and queries to guide us, we have neither dogma nor creed. 

People who worship with us start from where they are, building on their past experience.

We have a program for children and teens. The variety of ages and backgrounds enriches our community. 

You will find much silence in our Meeting for Worship – a silence of expectant waiting, and an opportunity for experiencing the presence of God. The silence is broken occasionally when a worshipper feels led by the Spirit to share a message. Every individual present enriches the fellowship, whether speaking or remaining silent.

What's New

First Day School’s Cookie Day fundraiser raised over $2,000 for Seeds for Peace, which sends seeds to refugees and other people in need so that they can grow healthful food. Its founder, Saratoga Springs gardener Sue Johnson, visited us in November to tell us about it. When Sue learned of our donation, she was overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity. We join her in thanking all of you who baked the yummy cookies and all who donated so generously!


The next general meeting of the Saratoga Immigration Coalition will take place Thursday, March 14, 6:30 PM, Temple Sinai, 509 Broadway, Saratoga Springs.  Please mark your calendars.  Follow at:
