This week at Newtown Meeting

Outdoor meeting for worship gatherings will begin next Sunday, June 20th from 9-9:45 on the front lawn of the meetinghouse. Social distance spacing for placement of chairs will be marked so people can easily place their chairs appropriately. Worshipers are asked to bring their own chairs or take folding chairs from the rack that will be placed on the meetinghouse porch. The meetinghouse will be unlocked for worshippers to have access to the restrooms but the meeting room will be closed. In the event of rain, outside worship will be cancelled.

Meeting for Worship at 10am.

Happy Father’s Day!

Advocacy Alert. Newtown Meeting, as a member of PowerBucks, an interfaith advocacy group, encourages you to contact your state representatives to urge them to adopt the 100% Fair Funding formula for Basic Education Funding. Read the Minute that was approved at Meeting for Business and an article that provides background and update of the situation. Write to both your state legislators in support of adopting the Fair Funding formula that moves towards ending the wide disparity in school district funding. Identify yourself in whatever manner you choose – I am a concerned constituent; a Quaker;  a member of Newtown Meeting; or a member of PowerBucks, an Interfaith Advocacy Movement. The letter does not need to be long it just needs to be sent soon as they are entering the final weeks of negotiations enacting a state budget by the June 30th deadline.                                       For Pa Legislators’ office phone numbers here is a convenient link.
