Trenton Meeting of Friends

Welcome to Trenton Meeting of Friends of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)! 

We meet for Worship each First Day (Sunday) at 10am.

Although we continue to use Zoom to allow that option for those who need or choose it, more and more Friends have started coming to the Meetinghouse to worship.  Some gather outside near the Peace Pole.  Some come inside, always maintaining appropriate COVID precautions.  The Zoom link for our Quaker Worship is emailed to our mailing list and to those not on our mailing list who have requested it. You can make that request by emailing trentonquakers@gmail.com.

We worship together for about an hour in what is mostly silence.  Although not much is being said, there is much going on as we center together in prayer.  Sometimes out of that silence, people rise to speak, sharing messages that come from the holy part of them. We find the honesty and truth revealed in this way to be helpful and inspiring, sometimes leading to callings and actions.  Trenton's Quakers are active, making contributions to our community and our world.

Among the historical testimonies that express central values of Quakers are the presence of God in each person, a direct and individual communion with God, and between all human beings a working towards peace, equality, simplicity, integrity, care of the environment and care for each other.  In these times, many people feel these leadings!

At the request of some who were at the Meetinghouse during our memorial worship for Thereas, I've created a site where sharing can occur.

http://tfitzgibbon.blogspot.com

I think people who could not attend her memorial would like to hear our thoughts in this way so it might be nice to make an entry even if it repeats what we expressed on Sunday.

Feedback, comments and requests for help with the site can be directed to me at chashardy@mac.com or 609 635-1082. - Charlie Hardy

Child Care and First Day School

We have First Day School on the Second and Fourth Weeks of the month from September through June. It occurs during the hour of Worship.  First Day School teachers Graham Apgar and Aine Mickey provide a Quaker centered active time for children from pre-K to middle school.  Each week is tailored to the ages and interested of the children attending.

On the other weeks and during the summer, child care is available in the First Day School room.  All care (First Day School and child care) is provided by fully background checked adults, although teen age volunteers might be involved under the guidance of adults.
