Welcome to the Bethesda Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). We are a congregation of about 150 families and individuals seeking divine guidance.

Please join us for worship during our regularly scheduled meeting times. We provide child care for infants and toddlers as well as First Day School (Sunday School) for Pre-K through High School and an Adult Religious Education program. Our Meeting room is air conditioned and wheelchair accessible. Directions are available for those interested in driving or using public transportation. The calendar contains information about committee activities and events of interest. We regularly update the calendar, so check back often!

Our Meeting is a one of a group of "monthly" Meetings that make up Baltimore Yearly Meeting. To learn more about that larger association and the component Meetings in this general area, we suggest visiting the Baltimore Yearly Meeting Website.

Query: Integrity
How do we seek truth by which to live? How do we know it when we find it? In what ways does my life speak of my beliefs and values? In what ways is my life out of harmony with the truth as I know it? Why?

Be still and cool in thy own mindand spirit from thy own thoughts, and then thou wilt feel the principle of God to turn thy mind to the Lord God, whereby thou wilt receive God's strength and power from whence life comes; whereby thou mayest receive God's strength to allay all blusterings, storms, and tempests. -- George Fox

Social Concerns Box
The Social Concerns Box for April is for scholarships to the Ramallah Friends Schools in the West Bank. Most of the money for two scholarships will be raised at Spring Fling on April 27 (see details above). Or contribute to the social concerns box. It is an opportunity for us to help build peace in the Middle East. For more information: email Ellie Fink
