Atlantic City Area Friends Meeting

"You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another."

Atlantic City Area Friends meet for worship at 10am every Sunday (same time all year).

Our meetinghouse is in Galloway Township, New Jer
sey, near Absecon (click here for directions). At 10am, we settle into a living, expectant silence. Many of us have come to Friends as adults and we welcome first-time seekers to come visit and share what we've found!

Children are very welcome and our building is wheelchair-accessible.
