Annual Sessions 2018

July 25th – 29th, 2018 • College of New Jersey

This Year’s Theme

The theme for the 2018 Annual Sessions is, “How Our Lives Speak.” We trace this idea–that one’s life can be an expression of one’s values–back to the journal of George Fox, a co-founder of Quakerism. In multi-generational worship, through programs for children, families, and youth, and by learning, listening and conducting the business of our busy yearly meeting, we will share stories and witness our Faith to each other from July 25-29.
