Bethesda Friends Meeting

Visiting Bethesda Friends Meeting (BFM)


Bethesda Friends (Quakers) gather together for about an hour each Sunday morning. We call this Meeting for Worship. Most people attend the 11:00 a.m. Meeting for Worship.

11:00 Sunday Worship

11:00 - Worship begins. Everyone is urged to arrive a little early to get settled in the Meeting room. Extra seating is available in the adjacent Library. (Child care for infants-preK 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. [Note: 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.
