Fall Continuing Sessions 2023

Saturday, November 11, 2023 at Arch Street Meeting House and online — Registration is open!
Friends of all ages are invited to attend Fall Continuing Sessions! Join us for a day of worship, community, youth programs and attending to the business of the yearly meeting. We will close out our year of focus on the theme: “Living with our neighbors, Growing into beloved community.”
The weekend opens and closes with worship:
- Friday evening November 10, there will be an online time of waiting worship (7-8pm) to ground our Sessions weekend in community and Spirit.
- On Sunday morning, November 12, we continue the Sessions weekend (newish!) tradition of All Together Worship. From across meetinghouses and homes, Friends are invited to worship all together from 10-11am. This time in worship will be held in the care of Yearly Meeting elders and the presiding clerk.
