Workday at the Meeting House

Meeting for Worship

Sundays at 11:00 AM and on Wednesdays at noon. All are welcome.

Meeting for Business

The second Sunday of Each Month after a light lunch after rise of Meeting. The length of the Business Meeting varies but it usually lasts about 1-1/2 hours.

Our Meeting has undertaken an exploration of our purpose and resources. In recent months in Meeting for Business, non-essential business has been deferred so that we may begin the task of addressing the larger questions posed by our changing planet: Who are we called to be? How might we help midwife the transitions that are coming?

It is critical that we bring the whole spectrum of our voices to these questions. Please attend and encourage other Friends to attend.

First Day

First Day School is held on Second and Fourth Sundays, beginning at 10:45, September through mid-June. See the First Day School page for more detailed information. On the First, Third, and Fifth Sundays, the children attend Meeting for Worship from 11 AM to 11:15 AM and then move to the Bassett House for group activities as part of a multi-age childcare program.
