Bethesda Friends are worshiping together
on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. via two venues
Welcome to Bethesda Friends Meeting
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.
We are a welcoming community.

Answering The Call To Equality:
A Threshing Session
Sunday, Oct 24 at 1:00-2:30 p.m. via Zoom
Please join us as we gather via Zoom to engage in a “threshing” session. To request the Zoom link, please use our "Contact us" form.
We seek to clarify whether BFM wishes to take a journey toward healing the harm, reducing the impact, understanding and counteracting systemic racism within ourselves, our community, and the world.
Kathryn Pettus, a member of Baltimore Friends Meeting, Stony Run, has agreed to clerk this session and has provided a brief description of threshing sessions and the role of the clerk.
