The Worship & Ministry Committee nurtures the spiritual life of Newtown Monthly Meeting, both as individuals on our separate spiritual journeys, and also as a blessed community, gathered together in the faith and traditions of the Religious Society of Friends.
See the Worship & Ministry Committee Description for a more information about the committee’s purpose and duties.
Duties of the committee include:
Coordinating memorial services for members of the meeting.
Coordinating the annual, semi-programmed Easter Service. This includes identifying an announcer, choosing hymns and arranging for musical accompaniment, identifying fourth graders who will receive Bibles, identifying person to present the Bibles, identifying a person to read the Easter Story, and printing the service program.
Organizing the 30 minute, annual, semi-programmed Christmas Eve candlelight service.
Finding volunteers to lead worship services at Chandler Hall on each Sunday for which Newtown Monthly Meeting is responsible. As a member of Bucks Quarterly Meeting, Newtown Monthly Meeting is one of the meetings in the quarter that takes responsibility for this Quaker Worship Service. The Quakerphernalia Newsletter shows which meetings are responsible for each upcoming month.
