The Millville Friends Meeting is part of a larger collection of meeting houses from the surrounding geographical area, called the Upper Susquehanna Quarterly Meeting. This collective of meetings and meeting houses comprises Elklands, HuntingtonLewisburgMillville, North Branch, PennsdaleState College, Sterling, Towanda and Wellsboro

Meeting Times

Meeting for Worship

Every Sunday at 10am

Our meetings for worship are now all held in-person at the Meetinghouse each Sunday at 10:00 am. Masking is recommended, but not required. Most First Days (Sunday) after meeting for worship, we host an activity, discussion, social time, or outdoors activities. Once a month, on the second First Day, we gather to attend to business before meeting for worship. We resume the business meeting around 11:10 if there is still unfinished business on the agenda. See schedule below for details. If you have questions about meeting for worship or any of our activities, please contact us, and we will follow up with an email. 

We are planning to hold online virtual meeting for worship during the week. There will be one to two meetings per month. When the details are finalized, a schedule will be posted on this website. If you are interested in participating contact us by clicking this link.

December query to consider

How can we discern when it is time for something new to begin, or for something to end?

Public

We invitechildren of all ages to join us for a time of fun with crafts and stories on December 18.  We are planning a special activity for youth to be held during our worship period at 10:00 am. Adults are welcome to join the children in the fun following worship.

For the Meeting

What are we doing to invite persons to attend our meetings for worship,

to welcome them when they come,

to listen sensitively to their needs and hesitations and to encourage their continued attendance?

For the Individual

How do I share my spiritual life and experience with others?

Public
Quakers maintain a tradition of asking probing questions about faith, life, family, and community. This month's query comes from Paul Loomis, a member of the Worship and Ministry committee. 
  • Have you experienced the empty nest; that is, have your children grown up and left home? 
  • What do you remember about it? 
  • Do you have thoughts or recollections about your own leaving-home experience?
