Upcoming Events

Threshing Session

Friends are welcome to join in a threshing session on Zoom on Tuesday, June 6 at 7 PM.  We will be threshing ideas about setting up a committee, possibly called the Engagement for Financial Sustainability Committee (previously referred to as Development Committee). This important work is necessary for our beloved Abington Friends Meeting in light of recent deficits and large pending projects, including our accessibility project. The Zoom link and the notes from our previous threshing sessions were emailed, and an email reminder will be sent on June 6 . This will be our final threshing session for this topic. If you are unable to attend and have ideas to share, please contact Wanda Wyffels.

Meeting for Worship to Attend to Business
Friends are encouraged to join us for our next meeting for worship to attend to business on Sunday, June 11 at 11:30 AM in the meetinghouse and on Zoom.  When our Abington Friends Meeting community gathers to attend to business once a month, we encourage ALL in our community, including newcomers as well as the youth and children in the Meeting, to join us. You are welcome and wanted in our monthly meeting for worship to attend to business! When this community sits to worshipfully discern (without voting) what we should do in matters of business, budget, maintenance and other matters as a congregation, we do so in transparency and with the participation of ALL in our community. Attending is the best way to fully understand the good work of this Meeting. We work together to reach unity, and we welcome your voice. Please remember that the Quaker custom is to speak only once on a specific matter, and then to listen attentively to others who may speak to the same topic. Our clerk facilitates the discussion and holds the space, along with the person designated as our spiritual anchor, until the Meeting community reaches unity. 

JFC and MSFC Send-Off
On Sunday, June 18, families with youth who will be heading to Junior Friends Conference and Middle School Friends Conference that afternoon are encouraged to attend our outdoor meeting for worship as a special send-off.

BucksMont Pride Festival, June 25, from 12pm-5pm, Abington Art Center
On the last Sunday in June, from 12pm-5pm, the Abington Art Center (across the street from our meeting) will be hosting the BucksMont Pride Festival.
This is a wonderful family-friendly, FREE event, with many activities for children and adults and lots of interesting food vendors and pop-up shops. Interest and advocacy groups, queer-friendly churches and LGBTQIA resources will also be present. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for outreach! On behalf of the meeting, Worship & Ministry will be sharing a table with AFS and the School Committee. 
Please consider walking across the street after meeting for worship and enjoying the fun and maybe even taking a spell at the table! https://www.bucksmontpride.com
