Bethesda Friends worship together on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. via two venues
Welcome to Bethesda Friends Meeting
We strive for:
SIMPLICITY - Learning to discern the essential from the non-essential.
PEACE - Living in a spirit that takes away the occasion for all war.
INTEGRITY - Being who we truly are and truly meaning what we say.
COMMUNITY - Knowing that we need one another in order to be whole.
EQUALITY - Knowing that everyone, everywhere is equally precious to God. This includes people of all ages, abilities, sexual orientation, races, ethnicities, levels of resources, and theological perspectives.
BFM's Social Concern for September is for
the "Mary Jane Simpson Scholarship Fund"
Each year this fund awards college scholarships to DC public school seniors with high potential, who are coping with difficult backgrounds and have very low incomes. The fund is managed jointly by Bethesda Friends Meeting, Friends Meeting of Washington, and Langley Hill Friends Meeting.
To donate to this Social Concern, please go to https://www.bethesdafriends.org/Donate-&-Support-the-Meeting. Be sure to designate that your contribution is for the September social concern (Mary Jane Simpson Scholarship or MJSSF).
