Welcome to Bethesda Friends Meeting. We're Quakers who meet every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Our meetinghouse is on the Sidwell Friends Lower School campus.
Please come by! We are a welcoming community. We believe there is that of the Divine in every person.
We strive for
Simplicity - Learning to discern the essential from the non-essential.
Peace - Living in a spirit that takes away the occasion for all war.
Integrity - Being who we truly are and truly meaning what we say.
Community - Knowing that we need one another in order to be whole.
Equality - Knowing that everyone, everywhere is equally precious to God. This includes people of all ages, abilities, sexual orientation, races, ethnicities, levels of resources, and theological perspectives.
Stewardship - Caring for the environment and using time and resources wisely, not wastefully.
