Welcome to Bethesda Friends Meeting
What a beautiful Candlelight Meeting for Worship we had
on December 22.
Thank you, Friends, for joining us for a peaceful hour of respite, from the glory of the holiday, but also, for
some of us, the anguish.
After a year of uncertainty that has kept families and friends apart,
our gathering felt especially blessed.
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.
We are a welcoming community. We believe there is that of the Divine in every person.
Toy Drive for A Wider Circle's Holiday Program

Annual Walk-a-thon for Interfaith Works
In November our Religious Education program raised money for the Interfaith Works Help the Homeless program. Sixteen people representing eight families walked in Bethesda on a lovely fall day, holding signs and banners high while staying physically distant. Generous donations from those who walked and those who joined in spirit totaled $635 giving Bethesda Friends Meeting second place in overall donations!
