Meeting for Worship is on Sunday mornings, 10:00 a.m. and childcare is provided.
We are members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the "unprogrammed" tradition. We worship in silence, knowing that the Spirit of God is among us. Anyone present may sense a divine leading to share a brief message for others to reflect on. We are a congregation that is welcoming and affirming to all. We are devoted to peace and caring for our neighbors (all of them -- no exceptions).
Join us at the meetinghouse in our cherished woods, or if you would prefer to meet with us on Zoom, we'd love to welcome you online! Our meetings are hybrid; a camera in the worship room brings our online Friends into the gathering. Contact us at efmemail [at] gmail [dot] com for details on how to join online.
In keeping with direction from local health authorities, mask wearing is optional at EFM.
Following Meeting for Worship is a social half-hour, then a Second Hour for business meetings, potlucks, adult education, or discussion.
Children in Meeting for Worship: Children of all ages are very welcome in meeting for worship! Typically, children enter worship with their families for the first 10-15 minutes, then go upstairs or outside with the designated Children’s Meeting teacher of the day. Teenagers, you have a choice: you are welcome to remain in the Worship Room or to leave with Children’s Meeting, whichever makes sense to you today. Children’s Meeting kids typically come back into the Worship Room at the end of introductions and announcements time.
