Quakerism is a faith of personal experience and direct communion with God, a faith of continuing revelation; and a faith of living our values in the secular world.
Montclair Quaker Meeting is a group with diverse backgrounds and beliefs, led to worship together by our common belief that there is “that of God” in everyone. Our weekly hour of worship is spent in rich and expectant silence, as we listen for the “Inward Light” to guide us. The Spirit may lead one or another worshiper to share a message which emerges from the silence. We have no creed and no minister. As Quakers, we strive to live by our values of peace, justice, equality, simplicity and care of our shared earth. As a community, we are seeking a deep and joyous spiritual life.
We welcome anyone and everyone who would like to visit and worship with us. If you are looking for a unique spiritual/religious experience, please consider visiting us to see if our Meeting for Worship can help you on your journey.
We hold our regular Meeting for Worship every First Day (Sunday) at 11:00 am (10:00 am in July and August).
Children may attend First Day School concurrently with Meeting for Worship.
Seekers, for adults, meets every First Day at 9:30 am over coffee and bagels.
