Ecumenical Friendship Night, May 14, 2015


All are invited to an ecumenical Friendship Night about the Quakers, hosted by the Women’s Fellowship of the Congregational Church of North Barnstead (CCNB).  The Friendship Nights are organized to promote interdenominational understanding.  This program will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 14 at CCNB.


Ruth Heath, a member of the Concord Friends Quaker Meeting, will introduce us to Quaker Testimonies (what they believe and how they live out their beliefs), their worship and other spiritual practices and the importance of prayer and silence. Song, silent meditation, questions and answers and refreshments will be part of the evening.   Ms Heath has been a Quaker for 35 years and has served in several leadership roles.


The Quakers (not to be confused with Shakers) are a Christian denomination and are also known as Friends.  They are very active in community affairs and are well known in the Concord area. Quakers are respected for their testimonies of pacifism, social equality, integrity and simplicity.  


Everyone is welcome to this inspiring and educational event! It will be held at the CCNB, at 504 North Barnstead Road (near the junction of Peacham and North Barnstead) Center Barnstead. 


CCNBWF supports the efforts of End 68 Hours of Hunger.  At this community event, we encourage attendees to bring along a donation of non-perishable food items that will be incorporated into backpacks send home with Alton children on weekends and over vacation periods.  Suggested items include: soup, pasta, fruit cups, peanut butter, granola bars, tuna, crackers or cereal.
