The Little Egg Harbor Friends Meeting celebrates
silent unprogrammed worship. Quakers emphasize the authority of
the Divine Inward Light as revealed to all people
through patient discernment of the Divine Spirit in corporate worship.
A Quaker meetinghouse strives to create
a community of faith, based on the experience of
a transforming power found in the Divine Inward Light
that is named in many, many ways: the Inner Light, the Spirit of Christ, the Guide, the Living God, the Divine Presence, the Seed, and that of God in every person.
Silence invites the sharing in the stirring of the Spirit.
All are welcome at
Meeting for Worship, each 1st Day of the week -
Sunday at 10:30.
The Little Egg Harbor Friends Meeting offers a place where people can find a sense of community and are free to explore their own spiritual beliefs, values and ideas in community with other seekers.
Silent Worship is expectant living silence,
not merely the absence of noise.
The quietude of Friends meeting for worship embodies the special quiet of listeners, the perception of seekers, and the alertness of those who wait. Vocal ministry occurs from time to time with the sharing of a concern, query, leading or prayer.
Quakers share a belief in the universality of the Divine.
