Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)

Seeks a STRIDE Coordinator
Baltimore Yearly Meeting (BYM) is seeking a Coordinator for its Strengthening Transformative Relationships In Diverse Environments (STRIDE) Program. The STRIDE Program is a volunteer-based program, composed primarily of young adults who have been involved in the BYM camping program and who live in urban communities across the Mid-Atlantic. The program works to actively live out the Quaker values of community and equity by increasing the attendance, participation, ownership, and leadership of people from underrepresented backgrounds at every stage of the BYM camping program. STRIDE Core Groups carry out the work of the program. To date, Core Groups have been active in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Charlottesville.
Quakers in public ministry whose gender identity is targeted by any form of gender-based discrimination - all women (cisgender adn trans), trans men, genderqueer, non-binary, and all gender expansive identities - are invited to gather the weekend of December 7-9 to support, encourage, and equip each other to be strong in our faithfulness. We'll share worship, worship sharing, workshops, participant-led sessions, socializing, renewal, and fun. An optional 24-hour pre-gathering will begin December 6 to allow personal sabbatical time or guided discernment program. For full information and registration information, go to quakersatthewell.wordpress.com.
