A Special Notice Regarding Virtual Meeting for Worship
Due to the current Stay-at-Home order in New Jersey, we are holding Meeting for Worship through Zoom video calls until further notice. Fellowship begins at 10am each Sunday and worship begins at 10:30am. To join us, please email [email protected] for details.
The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) is a spiritual community based on the belief that every individual can have direct access to the Divine. A central unifying concept for Quakers over the past 350 years is that there is a spark of the Divine within all people. Quakers express this in phrases like “the Inner Light”, “that of God within us”, or “the Inner Christ”. By whatever name we know this Truth, our belief and our experience are that it dwells in everyone.
This is the basis of our spiritual community. Believing this we aspire to be an open and inclusive community, affirming the diversity of our individual spiritual paths while seeking that unity which transcends our human differences.
We invite you to worship with us, regardless of your ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious background, or other worldly attribute.
We are an unprogrammed Quaker meeting, meaning that we worship together in silence, expectantly waiting on the Spirit. No minister leads us; no formal prayers are said nor hymns sung; no religious symbols are displayed. During worship we pass through distracting thoughts to the still center. We wait for the Spirit to speak in and through us. Anyone may feel moved to offer vocal ministry. Sharing in the silence and the spoken word draws us closer to God.
