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.
The Social Concern for May is Right Sharing of World Resources (RSWR). RSWR is a Quaker micro-credit organization that supports grassroots income-generating projects led by women, many of whom are making less than a dollar a day. Their mission statement reads: God calls us to the right sharing of world resources, from the burdens of materialism and poverty into the abundance of God’s love, to work for equity through partnership with our sisters and brothers throughout the world. In 2021, RSWR made 42 grants totaling $602,000 to fund groups which supported 1,110 women to start small businesses in India, Kenya and Sierra Leone. To learn more, see: www.rswr.org
