QuakerSpeak is a web video series aimed at communicating Quaker experience in ways that are appealing and energizing, particularly to religious seekers and to Friends meetings interested in growing in number and level of engagement. The goal of the project is to educate and engage viewers and invite them into a Quaker community, as well as to help existing Quaker communities become more responsive to these (and other) newcomers.

Children are a joyful part of Fallsington Meeting. In a tradition of celebrating families, we offer child care and First-Day School (Sunday School) from 11:15 to 12:00 (Children briefly join Meeting for Worship from 11:00 - 11:15). Quaker values of simplicity, peace, equality, and thoughtful care of the earth are shared through simple activities, stories, crafts, and song.

Who are the Quakers?
Quakers believe that there is that of God in every person and therefore God continues to reveal truth in some way to everyone. They believe that God calls everyone to be compassionate and caring toward others and to do their best to bring their faith into action. Many people come to Quakerism looking for a way of life that would support their calling to do good works. Quakers call their place of worship "Meetinghouse" and worship events "Meetings." All are welcome. Quakerism is a religion rooted in Christian tradition, but, each person has the opportunity to come to know God in their own way, so Quaker Meetings enjoy a wide variety of messages reflecting many different inspirational sources.
Quakers do not have a paid clergy. They practice an unprogrammed form of worship. Friends gather in silent prayer and meditation. Anyone in that gathering who feels they are led by the spirit to share a message, can speak that message. Speakers are encouraged to speak just once and to allow time between speakers. Seekers from any faith tradition, as well as those seeking a faith community for the first time, are welcome to come and worship any time.
