A Quaker community in Frederick, Maryland

Frederick Friends Meeting

You Are Welcome Here

Frederick Friends Meeting is a Quaker community brought together to know God and to answer that of God in everyone. We welcome people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, and faith backgrounds.

Take a tour of this website to learn more about us and the Religious Society of Friends (or Quakers), of which we are a part. And we invite you to join us in worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 at 723 North Market Street in downtown Frederick.  

Our life is love, and peace, and tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another, and not laying accusations one against another; but praying one for another, and helping one another up with a tender hand.

—Isaac Penington (1667)

What is a community? A group of people who have things in common. What makes Frederick Friends a community? We share a willingness to show up for the things we care about. On Saturday, FFM Work Day, October 22, 2022 those who were able pitched in to care for the building we share and the gardens we love. We also communally enjoyed a beautiful day, lots and lots of pizza, and each other. (And there was the amazing spice cake.)

Many people who are registered to vote have become discouraged about whether their vote is important and even unsure of when and where to vote. Several people in our Meeting worked with the Center for Common Ground, a non-partisan voting rights organization led by people of color, to encourage voters. (See https://www.centerforcommonground.org/.) We sent almost 500 postcards to Black voters in rural North Carolina!

The City of Frederick passed a resolution, supported by Frederick Friends Meeting, that asks the federal government to move toward nuclear disarmament.

About 50 adults and children gathered in the backyard of the Meeting House in the afternoon of Sunday, July 3,  for a fun time of food, games, and visiting.
