Bethesda Friends (Quakers) gather together for an hour each Sunday morning. Most people attend the 11:00 am Meeting for Worship.

11:00 - Worship begins. Arriving early allows everyone to get settled in the Meeting room. Extra seating is available in the adjacent Library. Worship lasts about an hour. (Childcare is available. Children K-8 attend Worship with their parents for the first 15 minutes until 11:15, before going to First Day School for Religious Education).

12:15 - Refreshments in the Library. [On the second Sunday of the month, a potluck lunch is held in the All-Purpose room of the Groome Building. There is always enough food for everyone.]

LOCATION: All Meetings for Worship are in the Meetinghouse on the Sidwell Friends Lower School campus.
